In conjunction with a dedicated Neighborhood Council, theCommunitySchoolstrives to provide programs to enrich the lives of the diverse population ofCambridge. This planning process enables theCommunitySchoolstaff to develop a framework of program goals and activities specific to the Linnaean Community.

The Linnaean Community School program is structured to build individual uniqueness and rapport among our population. We aim to build on a specific skill for the duration of the academic year by offering core classes, such as kung fu, foreign language, piano and gymnastics. Our additional enrichment classes strive to provide a multifaceted, multisensory immersion of specific topics of culture ranging from fine arts, science, history and other educational subject matter. Through this programming we hope to promote a nurturing environment that fosters altruism and awareness of differential learning.
