We endeavor to create a national network of charter schools that reflect the socioeconomic, racial and cultural diversity of their communities and exemplify a rigorous, student-centered academic program. Our schools will ensure that children realize their potential as CITIZENS OF THE WORLD.
Citizens of the World Charter Schools will serve diverse neighborhood communities, providing a high-quality education for all students from kindergarten through high school. With exceptional leadership at all levels and opportunities to participate in interactive, rigorous learning experiences with students from all backgrounds, our students will be prepared for success in college, a diverse society, and a global economy. In addition, by offering a viable public school option in these neighborhoods, we will be bringing families back into the public system.
With whole communities engaged with each other in the public system and witnessing children of all backgrounds thrive in a high-performing, diverse public school, we believe we will cultivate a true understanding that public education can work for all students. With real “skin in the game,” our schools’ families, like us, will be fueled by an increased sense of urgency to realize our country’s still untapped potential. By investing in its success, our communities will help us move our country closer to an excellent, world-class American public education system.
