There are numerous opportunities in the school day for children to interact with the students and teachers of all classes.
Classes: Our school includes three mixed-age classes: First-second, second-third and fourth-fifth grades.
Lunch and Recess Breaks: All of our students eat lunch and take breaks at the same time, mingling among classes on the playground and at lunch tables.
Triads: Children, each from a different grade, are randomly assigned to a triad group to complete project(s) through the year and accompany each other on field trips.
Little Brothers and Little Sisters: Each year, a student from the class of older students is paired with a student from the class of our youngest students to provide learning support and guidance on how things are done at Community School.
Reading Buddies: Each student in the school is buddied up with a student from a different class to be reading buddies through the year. They read to each other one afternoon every week.
