Mission Statement

Our mission at Community School 111Q Jacob Blackwell is to create a culturally responsive environment that is supportive where our scholars are prepared for the rigor and independent learning through equity and access to the curriculum. We value the collaborative impact of the home, community, and school connections through the provision of services and engaging lessons. We have taken on this challenge through shifts in mindsets and hold ourselves accountable for the academic progress and social development made by our scholars. We share in the expertise of the parents, teachers, community, and scholars themselves to be partners in this endeavor. A home away from home!
