Sophie (support staff) - 7/16/19

Community Roots Charter School is one of the value-driven public school I have ever experienced. Their approach to working with students is incredibly intentional and integrative, promoting a symbiotic student and community first approach to learning. The authentic support and care from each member on the CRCS staff radiates in the school's halls, reaching every student and family. Students are excited to come to school. Students are engaging. Students are understanding. And leading. And giving. Ultimately, CRCS empowers young NY'ers to have a seat at the table, and to make seats for others, not in spite of who they are, but because of it.
