Community Roots Charter School
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. Community Roots is a rigorous K-8 learning community with curriculum that is embedded in a real world context. Children are deliberately taught to see the connections between what they learn in school and the world. Community Roots students will meet or exceed the Common Core 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. Students learn to combine curiosity with appropriate application, which leads to deep understanding of material and the confidence to take on challenges to become who they want to be.
