We are delighted that you are exploring Community School as a place for your child to begin his or her educational journey. 
Parents value the security our secluded campus provides and the nurturing environment our teachers create. With at least two full-time teachers in every 20-student classroom plus learning and math specialists, learning is truly child-focused and tailored to meet each student’s unique strengths.

Our research-based curriculum equips students with all the tools of exploration: mathematics and the sciences; social studies; literature; creative and expository writing; drawing, performance, and the rest of the arts; and an understanding of history and technology. Year after year, our achievement test scores rank among the highest in the nation. Learn about our approach.

At Community, character development and interpersonal interaction are just as important as academics. Teachers join students for family-style meals, giving children the chance to grow comfortable in the presence of adults. Our emphasis on public speaking and performance helps students build the confidence to speak up and articulate complex ideas.

Our students are responsible, caring, and vibrant people who learn how to work with and to lead others in an environment that appreciates diversity and promotes inclusion. Every child graduates with the skills and eagerness to succeed in secondary school and beyond.

My team and I are here to support and guide you on the important quest to find the best fit for your child’s preschool and elementary school education. To set up an appointment, please call or email me. I look forward to getting to know your family.
