About Communities in Schools of Houston | High School Dropout Prevention

Communities In Schools of Houston (CIS) has served at-risk students in the Greater Houston Area since 1979. CIS is a campus-based, nonprofit organization providing direct services and resources to under-served children with unmet needs. By surrounding them with a community of support, CIS empowers students to stay in school and achieve in life.

Working alongside Aldine, Alief, Houston, and Spring Branch school districts, as well as in several charter schools, community colleges, and non-traditional sites, CIS is able to touch the lives of 111,000 students and their families annually. To maximize resources and prevent duplication, CIS partners with over 400 agencies – bringing community expertise directly to the school campus.
