The Greenvale Park Community School

is both an elementary school and a community resource, with an integrated focus on academics, health, social services, youth development, and community engagement. This leads to a better learning environment for all of our students, stronger families, and a healthy lifestyle.

"The Community School offers a place for students to belong, connect, and explore their creative talents. Students look forward to attending and leaders have helped build a true community. Activities provide students rich opportunities to experience arts, music, STEM classes, and physical education. Dedicated volunteers and partners make diverse programming and resources possible. I am proud of the Community School and the many ways it benefits students and families."
