About Community Co-design
For the Community, By the Community
We center our communities via a community co-design process which ensures students, families, and neighborhood stakeholders help us build each school’s unique identity and culture. This leads to a meaningful and authentic program of study that is built around the strengths of each community and the dreams of its residents.
From the Community To the Classrom
How Community Co-design shows up in our schools
We engage with the community regularly, asking families what they want to see from their graduates, listening to them and taking their wishes seriously, and we use the information we learn to shape our schools. Our goal is to always align our program with the desires of our community.
How this Benefits Students
Connecting Students to their Community
Each campus has a unique field of study that is driven by community co-design and integrated daily into classrooms, connecting students to community partners that specialize in their field of interest.
