More Than School

Supporting the Whole Student

Our Model

Education is about so much more than just school. Learning happens in classrooms, at home, online and within communities. This is especially important with more than 70 percent of Nevada students experiencing poverty and other adverse circumstances, so caring relationships and access to basic needs are critical.

Communities In Schools of Nevada works to ensure students have what they need to succeed in school and achieve in life. We do this by taking a comprehensive approach to student development which addresses their basic, social-emotional and academic needs to unlock their potential. Our evidence-based Integrated Student Support program is tailored to every school we serve in the state, customized to the student, and to the region, depending on every communities unique needs. With this approach in place, students are much more likely to stay in school and graduate.
