Mission: To develop a community of learners who are prepared to live, work and contribute to an ever-changing society
Flint Community Schools, located in the city of Flint, Mich., is an urban public school system with about 9,000 students. We have a long and rich tradition of community education. We also offer numerous programs, activities and specialties for students and their parents.
To deliver on our mission statement, programs begin with Early Childhood Education services, with programs at Summerfield and Manley centers, and continue through adult education at Mott Adult High School. We also provide learning support services for students with special needs, Title I services to support underachieving students, and English As A Second Language (ESL) instruction and bilingual support services for students who are in the process of learning English.
