Peek inside Metropolitan’s Community School program at Kennedy High School!

Community Schools operate during non-school hours and expand positive choices and opportunities for youth while achieving academic success. Tutoring, homework help, recreation, life skills, cultural opportunities, and case management services are included.

Emily Hendricks, Resource Coordinator for Kennedy High School, shares a few photos of the students and families involved with our Kennedy Community School programs in action:
