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.

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. 

CWC Kansas City Founding Middle School teachers will implement a high-quality and challenging program that leverages the constructivist learning theory.  The Learning Fellowship 6th Grade Teacher will plan and facilitate engaging sessions that allow students to develop their self-understanding, identity formation, cultural competency, and empathy skills through the following learning modules:
  • Peer Coaching
  • Mindfulness
  • Expressive Art Community Projects
  • Service Learning Initiatives
  • Identity Projects
  • Restorative Circles
We are looking for candidates who have experience with similar models of instruction, working in diverse communities, and a solid commitment to supporting the holistic development of middle school students.
