School communities vary enormously. They’re influenced by culture, location, tradition and social economics. But there are characteristics that all strong school communities share. These schools have forged a positive partnership between staff and parents; parents contribute in meaningful ways to the school and the subsequent increase in family engagement helps to support better educational outcomes for students.
