My son came here for 8th grade only from his elementary school. My strongest positive impression of this school is how closely it resembles the 'normal' middle school setting - at times a little too much. Regardless, it was a refreshing change from our his old school, it finally gave my son his first taste of a typical middle school experience instead of micro managing the kids. The student populous is mostly made up of intellectual/academic special needs - a better fit for my son because he is similar vs. uncontrolled behavioral outbursts. Students have lockers and move freely to get to classes between the 2 floors. The school feels like a family, the parent association is very active but not harassing which I liked. Paid lunch menus are available for students to choose from - convenient but a little pricey. Home lunches are allowed, but when authentic pizza pie are on offer, want your kid to be included. All in all, I was happy with the bulk of his experience the atmosphere introduced. Beautiful gym, beautiful ball field. My only complaint is typical tween antics with classroom interruptions should be dealt with more effectively.

The Community School is truly a special place. Before starting, I never would have imagined what a difference a small, specialized school and change in environment could make. My bright, motivated daughter started Community in the middle grades this year. Within a couple of days she was dancing around the house. Within a couple of weeks, her writing had improved dramatically. Every single teacher is committed to each child's academic, social, and emotional growth. This whole child perspective leads to a warm, nurturing environment. The students are some of the nicest, most polite, and least judgmental kids I have ever met. They really enjoy being with one another. The parents are fantastic, and committed to building community (no pun intended). The PA Association sponsors many events to help bridge the geographic distance. Every day I am thankful that my daughter is here. I hear equally good things about the high school.

This school provides a nurturing environment for the kids. The teachers and staff are wonderful. The gym teacher is amazing...really challenges the kids.

This is my son's second year at The Community School. He is doing fine. At his previous school, he was viewed as a problem, however at Community he has become a model (not perfect) student. The teachers are trained to understand his learning issues and the right kind of accommodations are made to ensure he learns. Behavior and discipline are maintained with a gold card system that the kids love. The teacher to student ratio is just right to ensure that my son gets individual attention. Parents are encouraged by the staff and PA to become involved in school activities. I love the school.
