New Heights Academy Charter School was founded in 2006 to provide a college preparatory education in a safe and nurturing environment to students in grades 5-12 living in Harlem, Washington Heights, and Inwood. Our family embodies the core values of perseverance, responsibility, integrity, discipline, and enthusiasm.
Our school culture is characterized by transparent communication, trust in community members, and an appreciation for diversity of perspectives. Our scholars are engaged in a rigorous, college preparatory curriculum which emphasizes critical thinking, curiosity, competence, confidence, and control. We are committed to ensuring 90% of students achieve mastery of 90% of the common core learning standards by 2018.
Reflections from our Founding Staff and Class of 2014.
