Overview written by the school: We provide a challenging academic program to students of diverse backgrounds, achievement levels, and interests in a small, student-centered learning community. As a Community School, we partner with community-based organizations to help our students physically, mentally, and academically. Our students participate in scientific research, web-based communication, and problem-solving projects. We help each child become college ready through rigorous coursework, SUNY Albany University in the High School program, Advanced Placement (AP) classes, and CUNY College Now courses.
