6–8 Overview

Our Learning Model

We look forward to eventually expanding our program to Middle School grades in the East Valley. Until then we invite parents to find out more about our middle school programs at our sister schools, CWC Silver Lake and CWC Mar Vista.

At CWC, we focus on Academics, Social Emotional Development (often referred to as SED), and Difference & Inclusion. SED and Difference & Inclusion work is done with students, staff and parent community – that’s how deeply this work is embedded into our school.

CWC’s middle school model creates a rigorous, child-centered program tailored to the needs of adolescents. Staff development, caregiver workshops and student programming are all grounded in brain science and developmentally appropriate content and experiences for this specific age group.

Middle School Instructional Approach

In middle grades, we tailor learning experiences across our model to provide a rigorous academic experience, practice invaluable SED skills to prepare students for high school, foster students’ positive self identity and develop their social justice orientation.
