In 2016-2017, Uncommon Schools New York City will serve over 5,900 K-12 students across 22 schools in Brooklyn, including both single-sex and co-educational schools.

Each school shares the same central mission of preparing students to enter, succeed in, and graduate from college. To accomplish this, all of our schools operate with the same core operating principles, including:

  • Joy and rigor
  • Focus on literacy
  • Structure and order
  • Partnership with families
  • More learning time
  • Character development
  • Great teachers


Let’s take a look inside one of our classrooms to view these principles in action:
