The Community School is an academic and mentoring high school, based in the Remington community, for young people who want to advance their education, improve their lives, and better their community.
The Community School was founded in 1982 by Tom Culotta along with residents of the Remington community in Baltimore. This academic and mentoring program has worked with hundreds of students, helping them to stabilize their lives, advance their education, earn a high school diploma and go on to college. In the summer of 2013, The Community School became a Maryland State certified private high school. It is governed by a Board of Trustees with the active support and involvement of a Board of Advisors, sponsors, students, parents, alumni, and supporters from the general community.
There are many ingredients to a student’s success at The Community School. Here are some of them:
``The teachers, staff, and everyone else associated with this school want you to grow personally and academically. This is a once-in-a-lifetime school that could get you into great colleges and better opportunities for jobs. This is why I love the school, because of all the benefits that it brings that other schools don't have.`` - Sean
