East Rock Community and Cultural Studies Magnet

We are East Rock, community connectors whose learning leads us out into the world.
Our school allows students to become familiar with the cultural and geographical diversity that exists in the world today. Students take charge of their educational experiences as they incorporate community-based problem-solving skills to promote a better understanding of and respect for all people and cultures. Students interact with our community in a variety of field experiences related to our magnet theme, helping to gain real-world perspectives right here in our own New Haven home.

How to know our school is right for your child:

  • Your child loves hands-on learning through varied perspectives and sees the world as their classroom.
  • Your child learns and thrives in an environment with a strong sense of community and collaboration.
  • Your child has curiosity about the cultures and life experiences of others, near and far, past and present.

About Our Theme:

  • Students have the opportunity to learn about themselves, East Rock, New Haven and the World!
