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 7:1 student to teacher ratio; state-of-the-art technology in the classroom; and hands-on, inquiry based learning methods. Now in its eighth year of operation, CPS serves 91 students spanning pre-kindergarten through fifth grade, 35 middle school alumni, and continues in its mission to shape curious, compassionate, resilient scholars who will be future leaders in their community.
