Community Roots Charter School currently serves 450 students (50 students in each grade, K-8). Any child who is eligible to attend a NYC Public School is eligible to apply to Community Roots Charter School. Please see Enrollment for information on how to apply to Community Roots Charter School. Community Roots is a rigorous learning community where learning is embedded in meaningful real world context, where children are deliberately taught to see the connections between school and the world. Community Roots students will meet or exceed the New York State standards and be prepared to excel in the 21st century by being taught to think independently and work productively within a diverse group of learners. At Community Roots, students learn to combine curiosity with appropriate application, which leads to deep understanding and the confidence to take on challenges to become who they want to be.
