    Organization Overview

    The mission of Citizens of the World Los Angeles (CWC LA) is to provide a socio-economically, culturally, and racially diverse community of students in Los Angeles with an intellectually challenging, experiential learning environment that develops each student's confidence, potential, and individual responsibility as citizens of the world. CWC schools:

    • Service a socioeconomically, culturally, and racially diverse community;
    • Develop students’ social and emotional skills to prepare them to become citizens of the world in an ever-changing future; and
    • Promote academic rigor through a constructivist, project-based learning approach, to support and develop children’s natural intellectual curiosity

     

    The CWC LA network is growing at a rapid rate and currently enrolls 1,900 students in three high-performing schools, growing to well over 2,000 students over the next several years. CWC LA’s schools rank in the top 8% (English) and 7% (math) out of 758 LAUSD, magnet and charter elementary schools, and all subgroups outperform the district and state. Our schools include:

    • CWC Hollywood (opened in September 2010, renewed charter approved in December 2014, currently TK-5th grade);
    • CWC Silver Lake (opened in August 2012, renewed charter approved in November 2016, currently TK-8th grade); and
    • CWC Mar Vista (opened in August 2013, renewed charter approved in December 2017, currently TK-6th grade and growing to TK-8th grade over the next two years).

     

    CWC LA has a Regional Support Office that supports all CWC LA schools. We work with our network partners at Citizens of the World Charter Schools, linking the schools in Los Angeles to CWC schools in other parts of the country.

     

    Our core values are embraced by the entire community:

    • Excellence: we demand lasting quality
    • Diversity: we are better and stronger because of our differences
    • Authenticity: we are our true selves in this work, and we are candid
    • Community: we care deeply about people. We share and build partnerships. We celebrate, laugh, and seek joy, even in the tough times
    • Change: we welcome the unknown, embracing the unexpected and new. We adapt to meet the ever-changing times. We find new ways
