Students Featured in New York Times

Our students have frequent and open conversations about the systemic inequities that impact their lives - and yet it's continually humbling to see the grace, power, and courage they show when they share these perspectives with each other and the world. Read Kauffman students' perspectives about the inequalities in college application process here.

Kauffman School Celebrates Alongside Teach For America

This winter, Teach For America corps members and alumni celebrated the 10 year anniversary of Teach For America - Kansas City working alongside students and families in Kansas City's urban schools. The #TENacious event was especially exciting for our team as we got to see some of our students perform (go cheer team! go Marching Cobras!) and saw our school staff featured or lead reflections. About 50% of Kauffman School staff are Teach For America corps members or alumni - grateful for our partnership here in KC!
