Community School is a small, secular, independent school serving students ages three through fourteen. We value the whole child and seek to develop each student’s individual gifts. We encourage self-reliance, critical thinking, and creativity. We respect the social, emotional, physical and intellectual needs of each child. We strive to nurture brave, good and curious citizens who contribute responsibly to their local and global communities.
