Supporting Our Community

nurse talking to family

In 2009, Brooklyn Center Community Schools became the first Full-Service Community Schools District in the state of Minnesota. We work with families and the community to help ensure all of our scholars are socially, mentally, and physically prepared for an ever-changing world. With over 100 partnerships with community organizations, we’re able to better serve the whole child — eliminating barriers to learning so that each child can freely pursue their potential.
