Uncommon Schoolsstarts and manages outstanding urban charter public schools that close theachievement gap and prepare low-income students to graduate from college.
At Uncommon Schools,our classrooms are named after colleges because that's where our students areheaded. We are a nonprofit network of public charter schools in New York, NewJersey and Massachusetts. Our 38 college prep schools consistently rank amongthe highest-performing in their home states for three reasons:
We know all studentshave what it takes to go to college. We are fiercely committed to cultivatingthe intellectual curiosity and grit that will spur their success in theclassroom and in their communities.
We create andconstantly fine-tune our systems to help teachers teach and students learn.
We know that withoutgreat teachers and leaders, nothing else matters. We also know there's no limitto learning. That's why people development is at our core.
