A community school is both a place and a set of partnerships between the school and other community resources. Its integrated focus on academics, social services, youth and community development and community engagement leads to improved student learning, stronger families and healthier communities. 

Community schools bring together many partners to offer a range of supports and opportunities to children, youth, families and communities. Children and families have an array of supports from community partners right at their school. These partnerships utilize shared physical and human assets to help students succeed.

Our goal is to bring schools, families and the larger community together so that all children have success in learning and life.
