Vancouver Public Schools

In Vancouver Public Schools, families are offered food, clothing, healthcare, and more, via a district-community collaboration to meet all students' basic needs and remove barriers to learning. Vancouver goes unapologetically beyond the traditional public school purview in its whole child approach—think mobile food and hygiene pantries—and results are staggering. Learn about the nationally acclaimed family-community resource centers that have become models to emulate for total child programs.
