The Community School was founded by Beatrice Lieben, to serve the bright child with learning and attentional disabilities.
Community School provides students in grades K-12 with skilled remedial help and with a challenging curriculum taught within the framework of an educational plan developed to meet each student's needs and learning style, offering a complete academic experience for all of our students.
We have also committed ourselves to making sure that our students' learning experiences extend beyond academics.
We encourage each student to reach his or her personal best - not only in the classroom but as contributing members of their communities.
The goal of school is to assure that the excellent education we offer at Community School is stronger than ever.
Collectively we are committed to the school’s mission-that each and every one of our students can excel and that all of them deserve the opportunity to reach their fullest potential.
