Wings Academy

Overview written by the school: In September 1994, the New York City Department of Education, the Center for Collaborative Education, and the Coalition of Essential Schools sponsored the first systemic effort to redesign a large high school in the Bronx. Wings Academy was one of five pioneering small schools resulting from that effort, founded on the premise of helping young people use their minds well. Our primary goal is to develop students' habits of mind, which will encourage respect for lifelong learning, purposefulness, and success.
