About Us

Carlin Springs Elementary School: Community School


Community School
    Carlin Springs is Arlington's model "community school."  Our school facility is used as a base to support students and their families by addressing not only academic needs, but also social, emotional, and health needs through linkages to community partners.  By addressing the needs of the "whole child," we enhance student success in school and in the larger community.
 
   Most of the opportunities associated with the community school model occur before and after school, and in the evenings.
 
   The opportunities include:
  • Many engaging after-school enrichment activities designed to reinforce and enhance what is learned during the school day
  • Parenting workshops
  • Family library nights and curriculum nights
  • Weekly developmental playgroups for toddlers and their parents or caregivers
  • Computer classes for parents, with enrichment activities for children while parents are in class
  • A student-run savings branch of the Arlington VA Federal Credit Union
  • Additional resources for any families who need access to mental health, health, and dental services
