Sharing Our Hopeful Vision

Purpose Built Schools believes that it takes more than effective instructional practices to address the challenges of under resourced communities that can be barriers to student academic success.

The neighborhoods of south Atlanta face challenges such as trauma and mental health issues, housing instability and poor quality, lack of secure adult relationships, limited access to affordable and healthy food, income insecurity and high unemployment, among others.

Our Community Engagement Program helps address these needs and reduce the achievement gap by providing strategic programs and partnerships that support and engage our students, families and community.

The team helps expand students’ exposure to diverse learning opportunities and improve student’s academic outcomes through a robust network of partnerships, programs and services that connect students and families to the school and help the neighborhood thrive.

A quality education has the power to change a child’s future. We nurture and challenge our students so they can discover their excellence.
