Launching A New Innovative Middle School Model           
CWC Schools will launch a new middle school model in Kansas City in the fall of 2019.  The urgency and conviction for this new design is grounded in the following principles:
  • Understanding and valuing students for who they are now:  The three years of middle school represent a unique period in the development of a child.  The design of our program should be aligned to meet the social, emotional, and cognitive needs of adolescents.
  • Developing the full self:  Academic mastery alone is inadequate for students to thrive in an increasingly diverse and global society.  Learning to navigate change, persevere through struggle, understand difference, and develop a strong identity are requirements for success.  
  • Equity, inclusion and commitment to change:  Diverse communities are an opportunity to come together for understanding, for empathy, and for action.  In a new model with equity at the core, we hope to create microcosms of what is possible that can have ripple effects well beyond our walls.
In addition to a rigorous and engaging Math and ELA program, the model incorporates a set of promising new school features, including a Learning Fellowship component that focuses on developing the self-actualization and leadership of all students, and Interdisciplinary Course, a space where students will tackle some of the world’s most vexing and pressing challenges and in doing so, develop the knowledge, skills, and orientations of global leadership.
This will be a transformational experience for founding students and families; the Learning Fellowship Coordinator will play a critical role in creating a new generation of lifetime learners and leaders.

Summary                                                              
The mission of CWC Kansas City is to provide an excellent public education focused on developing and demonstrating understanding while building connections within a diverse community.
