The Banner School has long been recognized as a community partner and has strong community connections. We instill the value of service to others in our program throughout the school and strive to provide students with opportunities to participate in charitable activities. Students participate in an annual Walk for the Homeless here on campus; the National Junior Honor Society sponsors clothing, food, and toy drives twice a year. Middle School students help serve lunch to hundreds of guests at the Frederick Rescue Mission monthly, various classes write to soldiers stationed overseas, and groups of students design holiday wreaths for the Frederick Arts Council’s annual Festival of the Greens. The school itself provides performance space to local charitable organizations, hosts Frederick’s Relay for Life each year, and organizes other events to benefit the community.
