Community Partnerships


Ac&Co Architecture and Rich Duncan Construction make our new home possible

Thanks to the support and work of Ac&Co Architecture and Rich Duncan Construction, we will be renovating a space downtown to be our new home. Using a collaborative design build process, these two companies have made our vision of a new space into a reality. Our new school would not be possible with the community support of these two local companies.


 HSCS is its own lunch provider

Thanks to a partnership with Fresh-n-Local foods, Howard Street serves breakfast and lunch every day. Our meals are prepared from scratch here in Salem using wholesome and more local ingredients. We cook them daily and prepare the fresh fruits and vegetables that come with each meal. Help your student be more healthy by eating a school lunch.

Breakfast $1.50, Lunch $3.75, separate Milk $.50

Community Service

All students must complete 30 hours of community service (5 in 6th grade, 10 in 7th grade, and 15 in 8th grade) in order to attend the 8th grade end of the year trip. We want students to go out and help others by doing something for someone who is not in their immediate family for no pay/compensation. Students do a variety of things like cleaning the computer lab at school, volunteering at their elementary school, working at the Humane Society, helping sort food at Marion and Polk County Food Share and dozens of other ways to help Salem-Keizer. Howard Street itself helps our community with our annual Rake-n-Run neighborhood leaf clean-up as well as our food and clothing drives to support St. Francis Shelter.

Teaching Language and Culture - Willamette University and Tokyo International

Thank you to Willamette and Tokyo University who teach Japanese as one of our Enrichment Academy activities every Fall. College students share their love of the Japanese language and culture. Many are from Salem’s sister city, Kawagoe.

Be the change you want to see in the world.
