Students at Community Roots Charter School are part of an educational community where rigorous curriculum is made engaging and accessible and where students meet high expectations by receiving the support they need and deserve. Community Roots provides educational experiences that address the individual needs of students and ensure that all students meet their potential.

 

We believe that people learn best by doing things in meaningful and interesting contexts and that children need direct instruction in order to develop the skills necessary to be active participants in learning experiences. Community Roots students receive direct instruction in all content areas and participate in literacy experiences (reading, writing, listening, and speaking) while being engaged in the study of their world through three in-depth social studies-based units each year.
