Community School is an independent preschool and elementary school in St. Louis, Missouri, serving families with children age 3 through sixth grade. At Community, students learn by doing, which fuels their intellectual, emotional, creative, and social growth. The 7:1 student/teacher ratio allows for personalized attention and active, experiential learning. As a testament to their preparation, Community students' test scores are among the highest in the nation.
Community's preschool program sets the foundation for children to become active problem-solvers and critical thinkers. Students engage in a liberal arts curriculum that includes language arts, math, science, foreign language, visual and performing arts, and physical education. The school's beautiful 18-acre campus — with its woods, trails, pond, fields and new Treehouse — provides a safe setting for this exploration and a deeper understanding of concepts learned in the classroom. Community's focus on character development, service learning, and public speaking creates tomorrow's leaders.
