Townsend Community School

LOGOTownsend Community School (TCS) is a conversion community school established in 2011 and sponsored by the Margaretta Local School District. The credit-recovery school accomodates at-risk students in grades 9-12, and also offers adults education and college credit plus opportunities. It has a safe and innovative learning environment in a modern facility that allows each student to learn at their own pace.

As the sponsor of Townsend Community School, the Margaretta Local School District provides resources to support TCS. Our relationship with TCS is more like a partnership for an alternative educational delivery system to improve student achievement. Our commitment is to offer "managed growth" to meet the needs to each student by not trading enrollment and funding for individual student success.
