What is a Charter Management Organization?

Uncommon Schools starts and manages outstanding urban charter public schools that close the achievement gap and prepare low-income students to graduate from college. 

Uncommon Schools is a network of 42 charter public schools across Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York. All of our schools are managed by a Home Office, based in New York City, and regional teams.  We provide wide-ranging support including management and coaching of school leaders, professional development, staff recruitment, fundraising and more.  This way, our schools in Boston, New York City, Newark, Camden, Rochester, and Troy can focus on teaching and learning.
