    Communities In Schools is a local, private, non-profit organization dedicated to impacting the lives of children in a positive way, helping them achieve the success they often find unattainable. As the only non-profit permanently housed on school campuses, the professional staff of CIS are caring adults who make student problems manageable and solutions possible.


    Our mission: The mission of Communities in Schools is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.


    Core Values: Communities in Schools believes that every child needs and deserves these “Five Basics”…

    2.     A safe place to learn and grow

    5.     A chance to give back to peers and the community
