We have two kids at CWC Mar Vista and they are thriving. CWC puts an emphasis on their social emotional learning program which is woven into the curriculum throughout the day. Empathy, mindfulness, conflict resolution and growth mindset are given equal importance along with the common core academics. Building better citizens and future community leaders. Teachers we have experienced have been very competent, caring and fully invested in the school philosophy. Lessons and projects and thoughtful, intentional and relevant to real world issues that we are all facing.

– TK-5 Parent, 2021 

It is hard to put into words how much we love CWC and how lucky we feel to have found this hidden gem for our children. The staff & the teachers are outstanding. They take the time to really know and understand each child. The teachers make their classes so engaging (it was really amazing overhearing the classes during Covid learning at home). The subjects are woven together so well and the work is thoughtful and meaningful, there is no busy work, or memorizing of random facts for a test. I love how my children can actually explain what they are learning and how it relates to their lives.
