What is Community Partnership School?
Founded in 2006, Community Partnership School (CPS) is an innovative, independent elementary school, dedicated to providing an affordable, high-quality education to children from low-wealth, low-income backgrounds in North Philadelphia.
Located in North Central Philadelphia and serving one of the city’s lowest-income neighborhoods, CPS provides small class sizes; a 6:1 student to teacher ratio; state-of-the-art technology in the classroom; hands-on, inquiry based learning methods; and an enriching After School Program that offers instruction in martial arts, ballet, African dance, music, chess, and more. Now in its seventh year of operation, CPS serves 88 students spanning pre-kindergarten through fifth grade, 23 middle school alumni, and continues in its mission to shape curious, compassionate, resilient scholars who will be future leaders in their community.
