Educational Excellence, Community, Diversity


Volunteers are The City School’s greatest resource. Each student’s family is encouraged to volunteer 30 hours each year, resulting in campus-wide commitment derived organically from our diverse body of talent, energy, and special interest.

NEW:  We are looking for a grant writer. If anyone is interested please reach out to Sharon Masek at


We have volunteer opportunities for the Parent Tours, click here


Volunteers are needed for the outreach committee.  Please send an email to if you are interested.

Outreach committee members are needed to find new and diverse communities who might be interested in City School and entering our lottery for the next academic school year.  This committee is very important as diversity if part of the school's mission, and all of our students benefit from a diverse student body.

Campus Beautification Volunteers Needed:

The Campus Beautification Committee is looking for volunteers to help keep the school clean, organized and safe for our kids.  A few hours per week or month would be ideal.

The City School Library will open during Lunch on  Tuesday, September 8 . The success of the library depends on the help of volunteers each day . 
The library will be open at Lunch every day, and during Thursday Advisory, pending volunteer availability. 
Two volunteers are needed for each shift: 
  • Monday - Thursday   12:15 pm - 1:00 pm
  • Fridays   12:00 pm - 12:45 pm
  • Thursdays   8:10 am - 9:00 am

In order to create consistency, it would be great if parents could volunteer the same day each week or every other week.

Language Arts Enrichment Major: Parent Volunteer Opportunity
As you know, The City School strives to meet the needs of all our students and we have a number of ways in which we try to do just that. One of the ways we attempt to support students is through our language arts enrichment major. This is an hour-long class offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30 - 3:30. In the past, we have experimented with a number of formats for this class. This semester we are trying a new format. We are asking that parents who can make a light commitment to come in and support our students in this major. 
There is a variety of student needs in this class, so having multiple adults to support them would be ideal. Over the course of the semester, students will need support in writing and revising essays, someone to read with them for a class assignment, support with grammar or vocabulary related work, and simple one-on-one encouragement to get through literacy based assignments. If you are interested in signing up to support on Tuesdays or Thursdays, please contact Ms. McCray at .
Please note that only City School parents are being invited to volunteer at this time.


We also have volunteer opportunities to help in the office. We will be posting a Sign Up Genius whenever they need volunteers to help. Click here!
