Community Schools

wý is proud that all of our schools are state-recognized Community School candidates. 

Our goal is to provide robust, wrap-around support to our students, families, and communities, and becoming Community Schools is aligned with our existing mission, vision, and work.

Understanding our Communities' Needs

In many ways, Bright Star’s schools are already offering key aspects of community schools. As Community School candidates, we are able to evaluate our current offerings and listen to our families and community members to understand their needs so that we can bring valuable resources to meet them.
