The Basics

Connect Community Charter School is a free, public, charter school that opened August 26, 2013 in Redwood City.  We are located 635 Oakside Ave., on the campus of Fair Oaks School. We welcome the whole community to our classrooms. Some key facts about us:

  • We will grow to serve children from kindergarten through eighth grade.  When we are full, we will have about 300 students. The following table shows which grades we offer during each school year of our growth phase.

  • We have one class for each grade K-5, and two classes for each grade 6-8.
  • The Redwood City School District approved our charter on August 29, 2012.  While the district and state share oversight responsibility for us, we operate independently.
  • Connect is free to attend, like any public school.
  • Connect is open to all, but we give preference to those living in the Redwood City School District.
  • We do not discriminate on any basis in our educational practices or our hiring (except age as appropriate for students).
