The Art of Words Community School (TAWCS)

TAWCS Mission Statement
The Art of Words Community School (TAWCS) is a K to 12th-grade independent school that believes children learn best through hands-on experiences, diverse text, and a quality curriculum. We feel that these teaching and learning methods contribute to a child’s understanding of the world in which they live, which is diverse physically, linguistically, and culturally. The tenants of our school and its curriculum, in our opinion, cannot be measured through traditional school methods; rather, our assessment model is based on how the real world assesses its citizens, through their words, actions and contributions.
