Children's Community School

Children's Community School was founded in 1969, in the basements of the Berkely Projects to assist families by providing a quality education in a loving and safe environment. The original staff was mostly volunteer and the Mission remains strong... Children's Community School lays the foundation for Urban students' educational success by offering a robust curriculum and unique experiences, by developing their individual character and by cultivating strong family involvement. Because the families kept asking, we began adding middle school grades. In 2021 we will add grade 8 to finish the additional grades.
