There are a lot of great public schools out there, but let's face it: Our public education system is broken. Public schools are suffering: overcrowded classrooms, inadequate facilities, not enough funding for textbooks, too much emphasis on tests, budget/staff cuts, a decrease in the arts, science, social studies, PE and computers. What draws many parents to CWA is what also drew me to work there. If parents need me, they call me up. If I need to talk to a parent, I can likely find them milling around after school - that's how involved our parent community is. Parents know their child is getting individualized attention with CWA's small classes. They know they are getting a well-rounded education with healthy exposure to the arts, science, technology, physical education -- things that are being cut back in other schools as emphasis has shifted to reading, writing and raising test scores. Yes, I teach there. So don't take my word. Schedule a visit, a tour. See for yourself. At CWA students work hard and develop habits that prepare them for high school, college and the "beyond" of adulthood. It's a place where genuine learning takes place for the sake of learning.
