In the fall of 2019, Taylor Elementary will become the District’s third elementary magnet school, Cedar River Academy at Taylor. Magnet schools have a focused theme. Cedar River Academy has a theme of Sustainability. Magnet schools use a "hands on - minds on" approach to learning. They use state and district standards but vary the delivery of instruction by teaching the standards within a theme.
Cedar River Academy provides an innovative learning environment for children and another choice for parents. The mission of the Cedar River Academy is to develop a community of high achieving, future ready learners with a passion for the sustainability of our environment, our community, and our self. CRA infuses Sustainability into all aspects of learning. The Design Process is used throughout a variety of subjects.
