About Center for Responsive Schools

Center for Responsive Schools, Inc. (CRS) was founded in 1981 by a group of public school educators who had a vision of bringing together social and academic learning throughout the school day. We remain dedicated to helping those who want to learn about elementary teaching that emphasizes social, emotional, and academic growth in a strong and safe school community. CRS is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization and is the sole source provider of the Responsive Classroom approach.

Today, CRS employs about forty people full-time, plus over 100 certified workshop presenters. We offer workshops for teachers and consulting services for schools and districts. We also publish award-winning books, DVDs, and resources for school-based study groups.
