City Center for Collaborative Learning

CITY Center for Collaborative Learning designs, implements and advances exemplary practices in teaching and learning that transform the lives of young people and their educators.

We collaborate with schools and teachers to help build capacity so that we can all do our best work for all kids. We offer professional development and community engagement experiences for educators and education advocates & lead three small secondary schools where we ‘walk our talk.’

We are experts. Our organization is led by educators with decades of experience in classroom teaching, school leadership, and professional development. Our areas of expertise include project-based learning, advisory programs, the powerful ‘critical friendship’ model for professional learning communities, systems thinking in schools, community partnerships, student demonstrations of learning, creating positive school culture, and more.

We are innovators – and practitioners. CITY Center for Collaborative Learning leads three small secondary schools that are implementing innovative practices on a daily basis. Our next level of impact is collaborating with schools and teachers in Southern Arizona and beyond to share what we do and to help build capacity so that we can all do our best work for all students.
