Our Learning Model
Our learning model allows students to achieve their fullest potential by supporting their academic growth, emotional development and understanding the diversity around them.
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.
CWC Hollywood students often matriculate to our sister school, CWC Silver Lake.
