Middle School (6-8)

The three years of middle school, from 6th through 8th Grade, represent a unique period in the development of a child. Characterized by monumental change in physical development, social awareness and need, self perception, emotional swings, middle schoolers are dynamic beings. Today, middle schoolers are attending schools that do not understand them. Their designs ignore what we know about adolescent abilities and needs socially, emotionally, and cognitively. Too often we value only who students are becoming later and not who they are right now.

The CWC Kansas City middle school, preparing to launch with a 6th grade class this fall, will exemplify an intellectually challenging, experiential learning environment that develops each student’s abilities, confidence, and sense of responsibility for themselves and their community.

Our students will:

  • Possess deep critical thinking and cognitive skills
  • Be prepared to thrive in college, in a career, in our diverse society, and in a global economy
  • Emerge as a new generation of leaders - as trailblazers who are ready to tackle the future challenges in our world and surpass any conceived limitations of what students, communities, parents, and schools can achieve in the world.
