Beginning in the 2015-2016 school year, the Community School initiative represents a $100 million investment in 130 schools. Ninety-four of these schools are also Renewal Schools, the City's key strategy for rapid academic improvement in struggling schools. As of August 2018, there are now 247 NYC Community Schools. See here for an overview of NYC Community Schools.

Support from All Sides
Educating a child to be successful in college and career requires a holistic approach. Community Schools help students find their passion by integrating academics, health, youth development, and family engagement. By bringing schools and partners together to create new opportunities and real results, we foster collaboration within a community.
