Now is the Time. Memphis is the Place.

Derwin Sisnett & Gestalt Community Schools

Derwin Sisnett is a native New Yorker, who came to Memphis with his wife to be a part of a big city that feels like a small town. He’s the CEO of Gestalt Community Schools, a system of K-12 college-preparatory charter schools in targeted Tennessee communities.”Gestalt” is a German word describing something that is more than the sum of its parts. With that in mind, instead of debating whether education impacts the community or vice versa, GCS believes that the most effective method to support student achievement is an integration of education and community (a true “gestalt”).
