The Partnership for Community Schools in Malden is a non-profit organization that was launched in the summer of 2000 to ensure that all of Malden's public schools are accessible to, and utilized by, the entire Malden community.
PCSM oversees a multitude of services for residents of Malden, including before-school, after-school, adult education and summer programs, as well as some of the city's youth sports programs.
Through our varied and flexible programming, we support and challenge the physical, social, and intellectual growth of each participant. Our academic activities including homework help and academic enrichment courses support the work children do during the school day. Our recreational activities are designed to foster sportsmanship, healthy competition, teamwork, cooperation, and fair play. All of our programs provide children with activities that promote healthy lifestyle choices and help decrease high risk behavior.
