Why Community and Family involvement is important to our schools?

Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education are more likely to:

  • Adapt well to school
  • Attend school more regularly
  • Complete homework more consistently
  • Earn higher grades and test scores
  • Graduate and go on to college
  • Have better social skills
  • Show improved behavior
  • Have better relationships with their parents
  • Have higher self-esteem

Additionally, linking community activities to the classroom

  • Improves school-related behaviors
  • Positively impacts academic achievement
  • Reduces school suspension rates
