In 2023, North Springs High School became home to The Link, the newest Student and Family Engagement (S.A.F.E) Center operating in Fulton County Schools.
The Link is part of the Community School Initiative which was developed in response to the increasing need across our state to address non-academic barriers to student learning. Studies have shown that when a student’s basic needs are met, their academic, social and emotional success improves.
By operating under the principles of a Community School model, the Link at North Springs High School is able to offer FREE wraparound services and goods for students, parents, staff and the community at large thanks to partnerships between the education system, nonprofit organizations and local government.
The services offered vary from school to school, as they are tailored to meet local needs. However, some of the most common services and goods provided across all schools address medical, dental and mental health; tutoring and other academic supports; and resources for families such as parent education classes, job training and placement, housing assistance and nutritional programs.
The LINK at North Springs High School is managed by two dedicated full-time staff members who provide free wraparound services for not only students, parents and staff, but also for the entire community. This free services include but are not limited to:
- Groceries including personal hygiene supplies
- Clothing and shoes
- Laundry Services
- Mental Health Services
- Mentoring and Tutoring Programs
