About Achievement Plus Schools

Full-Service Community Schools

Achievement Plus Schools are full-service community schools. They are public schools where community partners and educators work together to provide the resources and services that help students – and their families – continue to succeed. More information about community schools.

Community schools work because they:

  • Involve parents, community members and school staff in the students’ academic achievement
  • Serve as a hub for the community
  • Are open to students, families, and community members outside normal school hours
  • Offer educational opportunities and resources to school families and community members
  • Tap the community as a resource for learning
