Principal's Corner - academic excellence is in our “DNA”

Students & Principal Welcome to CSMB!        

Please take a few moments to investigate our community.  We are truly energized for what lies head for our students.

Collegiate School of Medicine and Bioscience was established to create a diverse and rigorous learning community, committed to discovery, innovation, collaboration, and academic excellence for future healthcare providers and research scientists. See who we are in a snapshot.

Quite simply put, no other school in the St. Louis Metropolitan area can offer its students the excellent academics in conjunction with the influence of our amazing Advisory Board and internship and shadowing opportunities with St. Louis' preeminent medical and scientific research communities.

Our student body comes to us from 36 different ZIP codes, and middle schools from districts including Kirkwood, Ladue, Lindbergh, Mehlville, Parkway, Ritenour, Rockwood, Webster Groves, and Valley Park, as well as parochial, private, and charter schools--and of course, St. Louis Public Schools.

The breadth and depth of our academic program makes for an exceptional educational environment. Through our partners, BJC Healthcare, Goldfarb School of Nursing, St. Louis College of Pharmacy, St. Louis University Medical School, and Washington University School of Medicine, CSMB students have unique opportunities within and beyond the walls of our school. We offer mentoring and shadowing experiences to prepare our students to reach for their academic and professional goals. Technology also plays a vital role in the life of our community, enriching teaching and learning and enhancing communication among all constituents.

Through this web site, I hope you get a sense of the spirit of camaraderie that distinguishes Collegiate School of Medicine and Bioscience in this community, and the dynamic people who make it all possible.
