Dress for Success

Located in the same building as the Street School, Dress for Success has become a good neighbor and friend. Over the years our female students have benefited from the professional attire and interview tools the agency has to offer our students as they seek employment while still attending classes or upon graduation.

Forsyth County Central Library

Due to limited space, the Street School has lacked having an area for a library. The Forsyth County Central Library, located one block from the Street School, has stepped up to become the program’s official library, allowing Street School students and teachers access to their magnificent facility. The library has also hosted Street School art showings.

The Street School has an established dual-enrollment program with Forsyth Tech that allows students to begin taking college level courses and trade classes while still in high school. This has proved to be an excellent way for students interested in continuing their education, to get a head start on school or learning a trade at the next level. In many cases, the dual-enrollment process is completely free for Street School students.

A local non-profit agency that provides household furnishings to individuals and families transitioning to sustainable housing, greeNest has been a blessing to our students in both the traditional high school and adult program. As a partnering agency, the Street School can refer students who are transitioning into their first apartments, often from homeless shelters or other unstable or unsafe living conditions, and help them furnish their new homes.

William G. White Family YMCA

The William G. White Family YMCA has long been a friend to the Street School but in 2023 they officially made their space available to the school for students needing a PE credit. In addition to a proper PE Class, thanks to the YMCA, the Street School’s basketball and cheer programs now have a home to practice and host games in the newly formed Twin City Conference.
