Welcome! A letter from the Admissions Director

I am so pleased you are considering Community School as an option for your child’s education and I invite you to tour the campus and meet with me so you can see firsthand what it is that makes Community School so special.

We all feel fortunate to work in this vibrant educational environment where learning takes place inside and outside of the classroom on a daily basis. Walk on this campus and you might see kindergarteners creating full-size self-portraits that demonstrate their developmental growth, eighth graders growing food in their student-built greenhouse to learn about sustainable agriculture, and seniors, dressed in black justice robes, arguing about the constitutionality of the death penalty.

At all grade levels, you will observe engaged students who are happy to be in school. You will hear students thanking their teachers as they leave class. You will witness the collegiate feel of our Upper School’s round table discussion groups. You will see teachers who challenge their students to think creatively and, most importantly, to take risks in this environment where it is safe to do so.

Each year, we talk about what makes Community School stand out among other educational options in our Valley and beyond. Each year we come back to this: Community School graduates are prepared, not only for college, but for life.

A personal visit to the school tells you more then any literature will. We urge you to meet our students and faculty, visit classrooms, and get to know our community. We also invite you to explore our website to learn more about our programs. You can access admissions information by clicking on the “Admissions” button at the top of the home page.

Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions about the admissions process. I look forward to sharing our Community School story.

Sincerely yours,



Katie Robins
