A hallmark of community schools is their focus on the “whole child” and family wellness. UCLA Community School has a strong system of learning supports to integrate health and social services into the life of the school. In 2016-17, almost 20% of students were referred for support services to a variety of community agencies, including: Children’s Institute, Koreatown Youth and Community Center, Children’s Bureau, Los Angeles Guidance Center, Star View Community Services, and Aviva.
Mental Health Professionals
Two full-time mental health professionals–a school psychologist and a psychiatric social worker–provide infrastructure to prepare the whole school community for crisis and threats and promote mental health within classrooms. This support includes community circles and conflict resolution.
Support for Immigrant Families
About two-thirds of our families are immigrants, primarily from Mexico, Central America, and Korea—among the highest percentage of immigrants in Los Angeles. For this reason, the school also partners with several immigrant rights organizations, including CARECEN, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA),and the National Day Laborer Organizing Network. A new school-based Family Immigration Legal Clinic is also under development in partnership with the UCLA Law School.
