Juvenile Court & Community Schools

The Juvenile Court & Community Schools serve the educational needs of students who are under the protection or authority of the juvenile court or those who are referred from school districts due to truancy, behavioral issues or expulsion. Our mission is to empower our county’s most disenfranchised youth toward a productive future through restorative relationships, targeted instruction, and inspiring opportunities for growth. Our objective is to help our students gain the social and academic skills they will need for employment or further education and the interpersonal skills they will need to maintain positive and meaningful relationships.

Our goals are to provide:

  • Highly engaging academic program through an innovative blend of classroom instruction, online learning and community based service learning
  • A focus on social and emotional learning in a loving environment
  • College and career preparation through real-world experiences
  • Coordinated mental health services
  • Assisting students in accessing their innate source of creativity through arts education and hands-on learning
  • Addressing the mind body connection by offering instruction in athletics, mindfulness and meditation

Our foundational tenets are:

  • By creating an environment of unconditional love and respect for students who have encountered grave challenges, we empower them to believe in their own ability to succeed. Only when they believe in themselves, will they aspire to live healthy and productive lives. It is then that our students become open to the school experience.
  • When teachers create experiences of personally meaningful, engaging, creative, and stimulating work, students gain a sense of mastery that fosters positive academic mindsets.
  • Staff must model the social and emotional skills we wish our students to learn. Staff understand that we “teach who we are” and hold ourselves and each other accountable to the highest interpersonal standards.
  • Students gain confidence through connections with the larger community through supported workplace opportunities. When our students gain confidence in the workplace, they begin the journey toward independence and productive citizenship.
