Another event, a New School Principal’s Panel, is planned for March 2. It will offer parents a chance to meet and ask questions of the school leaders at Citizens of the World – KC, KC Neighborhood Academy, Quality Hill Academy, KIPP: Endeavor Academy (elementary school) and Foreign Language Academy’s new Mandarin program.
