The Community School is undertaking a bold reimagining of our mission, expanding on education and justice work we’ve done for decades.

Our campus on an historic farm in South Tamworth, New Hampshire is evolving into a hub for multi-generational problem solving, especially in the realms of climate resilience, hunger, and socioeconomic equity.
