Challenging and Joyful Learning

Our classrooms are challenging – and joyful – learning environments that engage children through fun projects tailored to their personal experiences, strengths, and needs. Our teachers take the time to get to know each child as an individual. We empower children to think critically and learn to engage respectfully and 
productively with fellow students by developing their capacity to enter into and understand the lives of others. Our goal is for student “success” to include mastery of both content and emotions, so that students can meaningfully connect with each other, be part of any community, and courageously decide who they are in the world and how they want the world to be.

A Community of Schools

CWC Kansas City is part of the national Citizens of the World network. CWC schools challenge students to realize their full potential and thrive in a diverse society. We are tuition-free schools open to all, committed to serving diverse communities throughout the U.S. with schools currently in Los Angeles, New York, and Kansas City.
 Our schools are in strong demand: in 2015, we had 10 times more interest than space. CWC Kansas City is currently accepting enrollment applications for grades K-1 in the 2016-17 school year and grades K-2 in the 2017-18 school year.
