In the snow and cold of Kansas City we were able to meet with Dr. Robin Wilson, Principal, at the Kansas City Neighborhood Academy. Check out their website for more information on them here: https://www.kcneighborhoodacademy.org.
We also met with Dr. Charlene Luster who introduced #FallingThroughTheCeiling to the Academy and their families. We are developing a seminar with Dr. Luster, building on her work on identifying and supporting “Twice Exceptional” children in the classroom and home.
More About Kansas City Neighborhood Academy
The mission of Kansas City Neighborhood Academy is to build a community of students, teachers, staff, and families that works together to prepare all students to be successful as 21st century learners and leaders.
CHANGING THE ACADEMIC OUTLOOK
Kansas City Neighborhood Academy (KCNA) is a PreK-4 public charter school designed to transform educational outcomes for the children of Kansas City’s urban core.
KCNA is the result of a pioneering partnership between the Urban Neighborhood Initiative(UNI), the neighborhoods represented within UNI, and Kansas City Public Schools (KCPS). The partnership effort is designed to highlight what can be achieved when a charter school and large public school system work collaboratively for the best interest of children.
KCNA students will be creative problem solvers, skilled communicators, and reflective critical thinkers. Each aspect of the school’s design – including grade structure, staffing plan, and intervention model – has been thoughtfully crafted to support this vision of success.
PUTTING STUDENTS ON A PATH TO SUCCESS
We are building a community of students, teachers, staff, and families working together to prepare all students to be successful as 21st century learners and leaders. A school-wide focus on language development and literacy underpins the school’s academic model, and KCNA is A STEAM school – or a school with a thematic focus on Science,Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.
