Community schools are public schools that partner with families and community organizations to provide expanded educational opportunities and services to support student success.

Community Advocates and Community Assistants work in teams at each of Pasadena Unified's eight community schools to support and connect our students, their families, our school, and community members to local, free/low cost community resources and services.
