Community Schools

Great Schools Partnership supports 16 Community Schools across Knox County. Northwest is a Community School staffed with a full-time site resource coordinator and Site Steering Committee to identify and address barriers to student and community success. The team works to mitigate these barriers by engaging partnerships with the private sector and relationships with faith-based organizations and businesses. We rely on the support of agencies and partners to do this work because we know having quality public schools in every neighborhood is everybody’s business.
