South Bend Empowerment Zone (SBEZ) is comprised of Navarre Middle School and its four feeder schools; Coquillard, Harrison, Warren, and Wilson Elementary Schools. All of these schools are South Bend Community Corporation schools on the West Side of South Bend serving students from Early Childhood Education to 8th grade. We work with families, teachers, staff, and school leaders to design and sustain a shared learning community specifically tailored to the needs of our students. 

Schools in the Empowerment Zone collaborate to support one another, share resources, and capitalize on each school’s strengths through shared learning. Empowerment Zone schools are dedicated to inclusivity and believe all students should receive the opportunity to an equitable educational experience to better their futures and the future of our community.
