What is a Community Partnership School?
It is a place built on a set of partnerships between the school and other community resources. It is an integrated focus on academics, services, supports and opportunities that lead to improved student learning, stronger families, and healthier communities.
A Community Partnership School has key program components:
- After-school and summer academic enrichment
- Family engagement
- Physical, dental and mental health support
- Community and economic development
Our focus is GSES students and their families. GSES students deserve to have a strong instructional core with expanded learning opportunities, as well as social and emotional supports in place to help them survive and thrive.
We are working closely with community organizations to empower the families in our area to locate the necessary resources to improve their quality of life.
The Community Leadership Council of Gulfside Elementary is composed of representatives from different organizations and businesses from the community. Our primary goal is to help our students, their families and the whole community get access to resources that would help make everyday life better.
CLC members are as follows:
South Holiday Library
J. Ben Harrill Recreation Complex

River Rock Church
St. Vincent DePaul Parish Church

Providing onsite dental screenings, as well as emotional and social services to our students is a great way to ensure the health and wellness of their growing minds and bodies.
In an effort to provide our community with accessible, premium dental care, Premier Community HealthCare Group Inc. offers teeth cleanings, fluoride varnish and sealants to Gulfside Elementary, Paul R. Smith Middle, and Anclote High students throughout the school year.
To take advantage of our dental care services, please fill out the Patient Data Form.
We also offer school based counseling though Chrysalis Health. Through a referral process a student can receive a one hour counseling session at school which helps eliminate the need for extra time away from school and added transportation expenses. If you feel your child could benefit from our school based counseling services a referral can be submitted by our School Wellness Coordinator.
