SUPPORTING THE WHOLE CHILD

Established in 2016, the Center for Wellness, Innovation and Learning (CWIL™, pronounced "Quill") at The Independence School supports the needs of the whole child. CWIL’s team approach addresses not only academic progress, but also motor, language, cognitive, emotional and physical development, as well as health. This allows Independence to provide a program that holds the full interests of the students at heart, both in and out of the classroom.

Parent education, research and best practices form the foundation of the center’s work. CWIL’s mission is to ensure that Independence students truly develop into independent, intellectually curious individuals.
