Community Partnerships

Inspired by the "Big Idea" of Education Reimagined, Rock Tree Sky is working to create network of community partnerships to develop an ecosystem of learning in our surrounding community.

Recognizing that learning happens everywhere all the time, it extends beyond conventional school buildings to include various learning environments and resources throughout a community. Learning happens in diverse settings, such as libraries, museums, community centers, businesses, service organizations, parks, tutoring centers, community gardens, farms, online platforms, and many more entities in the community.


RTS is working to build connections among these resources to provide comprehensive support for learners. By integrating community resources into the educational landscape, an education ecosystem ensures that learners have access to a wide range of opportunities tailored to their interests and needs, promoting holistic development and lifelong learning.
