Communities in Schools and Edna High School

Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Based directly inside schools throughout the Golden Crescent area, Communities In Schools connects children and their families to basic and critical educational and community-based resources, tailored to each student’s specific needs.


    Communities In Schools is guided by the ‘Five Basics’

                1st Basic: A one on one relationship with a caring adult
                2nd Basic: A safe place to learn and grow
                3rd Basic: A healthy start and a healthy future
                4th Basic: A marketable skill to use upon graduation
                5th Basic: A chance to give back to peers and Community
