What Are Community Schools? 

A community school is both a place and a set of partnerships between the school and other community resources. Its integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development and community engagement leads to improved student learning, strong families and healthier communities. Community schools offer a personalized curriculum that emphasizes real-world learning and community problem-solving. Schools become centers of the community and are open to everyone – all day, every day, events and weekends.

Six Pillars of Community Schools

1. Culturally relevant, strengthened curriculum
2. High quality teaching and less testing
3. Wrap around services
4. Positive discipline practices
5. Authentic parent and community engagement
6. Inclusive school leadership
