We are a community school!

The Community School Model

E.L. Haynes partners with neighborhood ally, Mary’s Center, to provide our families with comprehensive medical, dental, and mental health services. Founded in 1988, Mary’s Center is a Federally Qualified Health Center that serves families from across the DC region. Through this initiative, E.L. Haynes also offers truancy prevention programming and parenting workshops throughout the year.

A Community School is a public school – the hub of its neighborhood, uniting families, educators and community partners to provide all students with top-quality services and opportunities to succeed in school and in life (communityschools.org).

To learn more about our Community School model, watch the School-Based Health Alliance’s Uniting for Young People’s Success video, featuring our wellness team and Mary’s Center partners.
