As an environmental school we know learning must reach beyond our four walls. New Century School seeks to create and maintain strong partnerships with community members and organizations. Community partnerships can include sharing of their time, knowledge and resources with New Century School teachers and students. One example of this is the strong partnership that has grown between New Century School and Fitchburg Fields Community Gardens, a local community garden that serves as a center for teaching and practicing small-scale, organic agriculture. New Century School students visit Fitchburg Fields regularly to plant and harvest food that is then donated to local food pantries. Students learn how Fitchburg Fields protects the land, strengthens the community, conserves resources and creates healthy, local food systems.
We are always looking for new partnerships to strengthen the educational opportunities at New Century School and allow our school to serve the greater community. If you are interested in partnering with New Century School please contact us to discuss how we might be able to work together to expand our students’ educational horizons.
