Our Mission

Our Mission:

We believe that each young person has unique talents and points of view that can be fully developed within a rigorous, diverse, and inclusive learning environment.

Our mission is to spark young minds through scholarship, creativity, and community.

We consistently ask our students to think critically, to problem solve, to develop a growth mind set, to challenge themselves, and to work collaboratively in order to prepare them for college and careers.

Our Keys to Success:

  • On-going communication with parents regarding student progress
  • Field trips to the East River and throughout NYC
  • Newly constructed science labs, auditorium, and music and art classrooms
  • Reading and writing in all subject areas
  • Problem-based group projects and expeditions
  • "Crew" Advisory Groups
  • A highly experienced team of middle school educators
