70+NYC Public
Schools

 

Through our unique approach to teaching and learning, we bring out the best in students, teachers, and school leaders throughout New York City.

Our educational approach joins together demanding and engaging learning, community, and character in ways that lead to high achievement for all. We bring this approach to over 70 NYC public schools a year, including a network of schools we operate in partnership with the city’s Department of Education.

Network Schools

Our Network Schools primarily serve students from educationally under-resourced communities. They prepare students for success in college, careers, and citizenship while simultaneously redefining what educational excellence can look like in our city’s public schools.

Scaling Our Work

We bring our most effective and replicable practices to a growing number of public schools and youth-serving organizations outside of our network through our Adventure and Team Building programs and our Select Strategies for Schools professional learning services.
