CREC Magnet Schools knows that a successful education does not begin and end in the classroom. For that reason, we are always seeking partnerships with communities, businesses, and organizations. In these partnerships, CREC seeks to accomplish the following:
- Enhance the educational experiences and opportunities of students through relevant, real-world applications of learning.
- Provide opportunities for partnering organizations to work with students in various settings (in classrooms, through internships, through employment, etc).
- Create or expand enrichment opportunities for students before, during, and after school.
- Increase awareness in CREC Magnet Schools about community events and projects, and increase awareness in the community of CREC Magnet Schools events and projects.
