Impact NW's SUN Community Schools students participate in…

SUN Schools create a network of support that ensures academic success, family self-sufficiency, and economic prosperity.

SUN stands for Schools Uniting Neighborhoods. SUN Community Schools are school-based delivery sites for a comprehensive set of services including educational, enrichment, recreational, social and health services.

SUN is not a program. It is a school serving as a support hub, with schools and communities working together to support the success of children and families and provide a comprehensive array of services. They serve as the vehicle to link community organizations such as libraries, parks, social services, area churches and businesses with students and families.

Whitman SUN School receives funding from the Portland Children’s Levy.
