NYC Outward Bound... does truly extraordinary work in the field of education."
-Governor Andrew M. Cuomo

“NYC Outward Bound is…defying the lie, defying the myth, defying the stereotypes about what children can and cannot do.”
—Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education

“Outward Bound’s involvement with the creation of new schools has had a direct impact of the success of our students. I appreciate your support as we build on our vision for public education: that all students will be given the tools they need to succeed in and out of the classroom.”

—Joel Klein, former Chancellor, NYC Department of Education

 “When you walk through the NYC Outward Bound schools, you really do get the sense that these kids are working with very high expectations, that they really are being pushed and prepared for college in all the ways possible.”

—Adam Tucker, Senior Program Officer, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
