In order to have the most positive impact on the academic and wellness outcomes of students, it is imperative that schools and communities work together through a collaborative and comprehensive approach. Community partners can help schools prepare students for college, career, and citizenship by offering additional opportunities, supports, and enrichment for young people. Strong school–community partnerships are essential for a world-class, 21st century education, and more and more communities across the country are creating such partnerships through the community school strategy.
