About

Our school sets a high academic bar that challenges students to expand their personal and academic visions of themselves. Through partnerships with outside organizations students learn by connecting with professionals. Students pick an academic focus in finance, technology, or language studies. We have a one-to-one Chromebook program, enabling all students to access technology in the classroom and at home. As a Consortium school, all courses place emphasis on research and writing, culminating in Performance Based Assessment Tasks and students are exempt from Regents Exams in most areas. In 11th/12th grade students have access to paid apprenticeships and work based learning. We are part of the Career Readiness and Modern Youth Apprenticeship (CRMYA) pilot, which helps us support career readiness for all our students. We have courses that help our ninth and tenth graders explore their career interests and develop readiness skills. Our students can apply for apprenticeships in tech, finance, and business, which allows them to earn and learn while in high school.
