The teachers try but there is a lot of fluff. Most of the staff is young and new to the profession who do not know how to challenge students. Curriculum is easy. Very little technology-related learning. Science is barely taught. The school shares... more

Wonderful principal. Great parent involvement. Yes, there are growing pains but everything is headed in the right direction.

Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective
Submitted by a parent · February 27, 2016
Teachers are very young, still trying to figure it out. Not sure how this school has short days every Wednesday for teacher development and their skills aren't sharpened. Are they sitting around doing ABCMouse.com?

About this school

CWC's curriculum is based on three of the leading strategies in education: * Constructivism: This theory, based on research about how people learn, focuses on active, hands-on learning in which students "construct" their own knowledge. Constructivism also emphasizes that teaching and learning must be "differentiated" or individually tailored for each student, beginning with each learner's level of understanding and guiding students in building upon their prior knowledge. * Project-Based Learning: In this framework, students are involved in planning, problem-solving, decision-making, and investigation around a central theme. They work relatively autonomously as well as cooperatively over extended periods of time; they reflect on their work, receive feedback and incorporate the feedback; they are guided by teachers' facilitation, not direction, to develop skills; their final product represents the skills and knowledge they gained, which fulfill explicit educational goals based on the state standards. * Multiple Intelligence Theory: First detailed by Harvard professor Howard Gardner in 1983, Multiple Intelligence theory rejects the notion that intelligence is a single, fixed measurement. Rather, Gardner argues - in a theory that has since had a major impact on education around the world - "I believe that human cognitive competence is better described in terms of a set of abilities, talents, or mental skills, which I call intelligences. All normal individuals possess each of these skills to some extent; individuals differ in the degree of skill and in the nature of their combination ... [I]ntelligences always work in concert, and any sophisticated adult role will involve a melding of several of them." (Gardner, Multiple Intelligences: New Horizons, 2006.)
