Traditional education focuses on creating workers for a world economy students are not typically part of.
The students at The Art of Words Community School (TAWCS) will create the world economy. Our goals are to focus on the overall child-- their social, emotional and physical development, as well as their intellectual growth as well as create an environment for our K-12th graders to love coming to school and learning new things.

School Notes

  • Our school provides an educational program and environment that is sorely missing other school programs. Our school presents a quality program that not only will meet the needs of our local and global communities, our curriculum includes subject areas often neglected in traditional pedagogy (i.e., world history, philosophy, creative writing, art, music, community-based learning). Additionally, our school will have the International Baccalaureate (IB) program for our middle and high school aged children starting in the fall of 2020.
  • TAWCS provides the following for your students:
  • (1) Smaller class sizes. Our classroom will have no more than 12 students in each grade.
  • (2) A diverse curriculum. We are a community based school and all students starting in 6th grade will work with Community Based Organizations (CBOs) and learn about these organizations and their impact on their community.
  • (3) Art integration. One of our priorities is to integrate the humanities into our curriculum content. Through art and literature, our students will learn about the history of the world.
  • (4) Hands on learning. We believe that our students "learn by doing", so all students will create, develop and execute projects of their own as it relates to the content presented in class.

My son LOVES this place! He never complains about going to school and has blossomed as a child and student. I didn't know a place like this existed.

At a time when there is so much uncertainty, it is nice to have a safe & nurturing environment for my child. TAWCS is a space where children are encouraged to learn and grow, teaching the whole child and catering to their learning needs. My daughter & I look forward to school every morning, I am so happy that schools like this exist.
