Brockton Community Schools was founded in 1970 to provide community education, enrichment and recreation opportunities to children and adults throughout the city. In the past three decades, it has grown and evolved, serving thousands of children and adults in a wide variety of programs, from basketball leagues to sewing courses, English as a Second Language instruction, GED preparation, automotive repair, yoga and computer classes. Community Schools also provides highly successful vacation and before- and after-school academic and enrichment programs for Brockton children, providing safe spaces and caring adults 12 months a year.

The office is open throughout the year, and suggestions for new programs and ideas for how to improve our offerings are always welcome.
