"The Commonweal School has a long and proud history of serving its community. The world has changed beyond recognition since Commonweal first opened its doors to students in 1927, but Commonweal is still guided by the creed its name encapsulates. For the good of all. The Commonweal School exists to serve the community in which it sits and the young people of that community. "
