55,000+ students served through Community Partnership Schools and Navigators Initatives

The 2023-24 school year was incredibly exciting for our Community Partnership Schools! CHS is a core partner in 31 Community Partnership Schools across Florida — leading the way in the state —and this is just the beginning!

We’re thrilled to bring the Community Partnership Schools model to four new schools — Bellview Middle, Campbell Middle, Longbranch Elementary, and Rutherford Middle & High School. And, thanks to the Florida Senate’s endorsement of our $10.6 million proposal to expand our model we can reach even more students and families creating positive ripples throughout our communities. With the collaboration and support of our partners and the community, we’re breaking barriers to learning and empowering students and families for success, both inside and outside the classroom.
