Welcome to Citizens of the World:
Understanding. Connection. Diversity.

We believe…

Students can discover their own brilliance. 

We are committed to helping your child find their own place in the world through personalized instruction, project-based learning, inclusive classrooms, and social-emotional development. 

Our differences make us stronger.

We are focused on creating an equitable, inclusive learning environment where students grow to understand themselves both as individuals and members of a community.

Core values matter.

We spend time every day discovering ways to embody and practice our school’s core values, empowering students to encounter complex problems and advocate for positive impact.

Education goes beyond test scores.

We believe what helps your student learn and thrive is far richer than test scores show. Our classrooms focus on the development of the whole person, including academic and social-emotional growth.

Our Mission
To provide an excellent public education focused on developing and demonstrating understanding while building connections within a diverse community.
