A Tradition of Public Speaking

Wherever you find yourself on Community School's campus on a given day, chances are good that you will see and hear students developing skills to articulate their thoughts, share their passions, and advocate for their needs.

Opportunities for public speaking come early and often here. Beginning with circle time in the Early Childhood Center classroom and continuing through each division before culminating with the capstone Senior Project presentation in the Upper School, Community School students earn the confidence to share their story with an audience.

The poise and power of our students' presentations have become a hallmark of a Community School education.
