National PTA School of Excellence is a recognition program that supports and celebrates partnerships between PTAs and schools to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being for all students.
As a National PTA School of Excellence, families feel welcomed and empowered to support student success, and PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvement.
The sixth National PTA Standard for Family-School Partnerships is Collaborating With Community. Many schools are opening their doors to their communities, becoming one-stop resource centers for families and other residents in an effort to strengthen the school and build a more family-friendly community. Partnerships that connect a school with local businesses, social services, youth organizations and other groups can turn a neighborhood into a thriving place to live, work and raise a family.
