CSM has a unique curriculum approach which continues to evolve as an enriching program, taking from the best and most-relevant aspects of several sources: the Ontario Ministry of Education Elementary curriculum, the Italian Ministry Elementary Program, and the International Curriculum designed for a global educational context.


From Kindergarten to Grade 5, children are taught following the curriculum from Ministry of education of Ontario, Canada, with some elements from the Italian Curriculum. Our inquiry-based approach to learning encourages students to adopt the attributes of character education through the fundamentals of:

– Language Arts (Reading, Writing, Oral Communication)
– Mathematics
– Coding (computer programming)
– Social Studies (History and Geography)
– Science & Technology
– French
– Italian 1 (Idoneità Prep) or Italian 2 for beginners
– Arts (Music, Art, Drama)
– Health & Life Skills
– Physical Education (includes Ice Skating and Swimming at external facilities)

Inquiry based learning is a combination of the following elements:

– Exploring, wondering and questioning
– Making predictions and acting purposefully to see what happens
– Experimenting and playing with possibilities
– Making connections between previous learning and current learning
– Collecting data and reporting findings
– Solving problems in a variety of ways
