Diverse in size, population, and programmatic emphasis, Essential schools serve students from pre-kindergarten through high school in urban, suburban, and rural communities. They are characterized by personalization, democracy, equity, intellectual vitality and excellence. CES organizations provide support services to such schools and are part of the Coalition of Essential Schools network.
