Common Ground: A Laboratory of Educational Innovation
Charter schools are known for their innovation and uniqueness, and in New Haven, there is one school that truly stands out. Common Ground is a college preparatory, environmentally-focused, public charter high school nestled in West Rock, New Haven. The school boasts a curriculum centered around being good stewards of the planet and educating young adults about environmental justice. Though what stands out most about Common Ground is that the school is built on a community farm that grows more than 10,000 pounds of food every year. The school then shares its harvest with more than 2,500 low-income members of the New Haven community.
