Community Schools

  • Baltimore's communities all have strengths and assets to contribute to the success of our city's young people. Community schools seek out those resources in our neighborhoods. They bring together and involve parents, teachers, school-based staff, and community residents, associations, and other stakeholders who share a commitment to children's well-being — and the knowledge that the strength of communities supports that well-being.

    City Schools' community school strategy integrates academics with health services, youth development, expanded learning opportunities, and family and community supports to ensure students have what they need to learn. The strategy works to establish and support community schools that are inclusive, equitable, and effective in promoting children's success, particularly those who live in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty. (Read more about the strategy in the Board of School Commissioners policy link opens new window and administrative regulations link opens new window.)

    In the 2017-18 school year, City Schools has more than 50 community schools
