Welcome to the 20-21 School Year
Summer School

Shout out to the 45 incoming 9th graders who joined us for remote summer school, to all the returning students who turned “incompletes” from distance learning into passing grades, and to the teachers who supported them! Special props to 25 students who showed up for in person summer school — all of whom earned enough credit to move to the next grade! 

Students, there is still time to complete your required Summer Reading Assignment this year. Details about summer reading should be directed to Monique Frasier at

Our Results

In each of the last 5 years, between 97% and 100% of our graduates were accepted to college. Our 4-year graduation rates significantly exceeded the state average in 4 of the 5 last school years. Recent Common Ground 9th and 10th graders have made greater gains in reading, writing, and math than 90 or more percent of their peers across the country, according to results of the NWEA MAP. Common Ground was the state’s first U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon School and a recipient of many awards and grants in recognition of our work.

Our Curriculum

Common Ground’s curriculum combines rigorous high academic standards for all, responsive relationships with adults and peers who really care, relevant, real-world learning that’s rooted in the community and environment, and real roles and rights for students. Imagine studying …

  1. Math while you … decide what should be planted on Common Ground’s farm to maximize production, nutrition, taste, and cultural relevance.
  2. Science while you … turn what you are learning about climate change into beautiful paintings, spoken word, and graffiti art
  3. English while you … work with professional actors to write and perform plays about social justice issues that matter to you.
