Overview

Mission Statement

The Wilson-Kindelan School provides a college-focussed, independent, elementary education using the Wilson-Kindelan Method. We are dedicated to expanding educational opportunities to students living in the Greater Boston area.

Background Statement

A group of concerned citizens gathered together for the first time over Christmas dinner 2014. They discussed the need for an expansion of options at the elementary level in the Greater Boston area. They determined that an independent elementary school serving a rich cultural mix of students who go a long way in remediating this problem.

Impact Statement

1. were incorporated as a non-profit in Massachusetts
2.  received  501(c)3 status from the IRS
3. submitted 10 grant proposals during this (non-operational) year
4.  located and entered into an agreement for a location for the school
 
 
 

Needs Statement

2.Volunteers to help with early morning drop off, after school program and general administration

CEO Statement

 The Board of Directors of the Wilson-Kindelan School decided to build an independent elementary school in the Boston, Massachusetts metropolitan area. They had been concerned with the limited choices in elementary education and decided that an independent elementary school focussed on high educational attainment and a holistic approach would go far in ameliorating this situation. Veronica Guerrero-Macia, our founder, has devoted her life to education. While a doctoral candidate at Harvard she was introduced to the work of Howard Gardner. The Wilson-Kindelan Method evolved from Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences. Gardner's theory states that intelligence cannot be measured by simple tests, instead the richness of intelligence can be found in the many strengths that we as humans demonstrate. The Wilson-Kindelan Method takes theory and makes it applicable to the classroom milieu.The school filed Articles of Incorporation with Massachusetts in December 2104, and received 501(c)(3) status in July 2015. The name Wilson-Kindelan honors of two of our founder's ancestors.

Board Chair Statement

We are looking at putting into action a new and developmentally appropriate method of teaching. Like Maria Montessori's friends and patron's, we hope that this method of teaching, the Wilson-Kindelan Method, revolutionizes education and that this small school becomes a model for more schools and teachers trained in this method. By being at the forefront of a new approach we are pioneers. Won't you join us in our adventure?

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
