Citizens of the World, a Hollywood charter school that will expand into Silver Lake this September with classes at Micheltorena Elementary, has spots open for 2nd and 3rd grade students. An announcement provided by a founding parent of the school, which is based on the constructivist teaching method, says:
If your child is entering 1st grade, we also encourage you to apply at this time. While our Kindergarten and 1st grades are full, there is always potential to still get a spot off the waitlist due to the unique nature of our first year in existence. (We are no longer accepting Kindergarten applications for 2012.)
Citizens of the World Silver Lake, which will be headed by principal Ramona Patrick, every year until it offers classes for 12th graders. Classes in Silver Lake will begin September 5th.
If you enroll now, you will secure a spot for your child in this progressive, academically rigorous charter school based on the constructivist method. This is an exciting new public school in the neighborhood led by a non-profit organization, top tier educators, and an energized parent community. We’ll be adding grade levels every year with the plan of going up to 12th grade.
