What is a Community School?
A community school is both a place and a set of partnerships between various individuals, groups, businesses, and institutions that are invested in the welfare and vitality of the school and its community. It’s integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development, and community engagement leads to improved student learning, stronger families, and healthier communities. Community schools such as ours, offer a personalized curriculum that emphasizes real-world learning and community problem-solving.Schools and communities connect, collaborate, and create. Community schools contain a host of opportunities and supports built-in that give students and parents all the tools they need to learn and grow. Children and families have an array of support from community partners right at their school. Schools become the center of the community and are open to everyone.
