Our community school is both a place, and a set of partnerships between the school, parents and other community resources. We have an integrated focus on academic growth, health and social growth, youth and community development and community engagement because we know this leads to improved student learning, stronger families and healthier communities.
Using public schools as hubs, community schools bring together many partners to offer a range of supports and opportunities to children, youth, families and communities. Partners work to achieve these results:
- Parents and community members are involved with the school and their own life-long learning.
- Young people are well prepared for adult roles in the workplace, as parents and as citizens.
- Families and neighbourhoods are safe, supportive and engaged.
