What is a community school?

A Community School is a school that is public, nonprofit, nonreligious, and receives state and federal funding.

Community Schools are often independent of traditional school districts.

They are also commonly called charter schools.

Because Community Schools receive public funding, they must accept all students, regardless of prior academic or behavior record. They must also accept students with disabilities.

Usually Community Schools have a specific style of teaching or academic program that sets the school apart from a traditional school program.

Community Schools do not charge tuition to attend.
