At Harlem Village Academies, our vision is for our students to become intellectually sophisticated, wholesome in character, avid lifelong readers and writers, independent thinkers, and compassionate individuals who make a meaningful contribution to society.
Teachers here have more than a voice: we are trusted every day to make important decisions for our schools. Each of us is passionate about creating a rich intellectual life for ourselves and our students. We deeply value the craft of excellent teaching. As educators, we are constantly digging deeper into the intricacies of learning and student work. We plan curriculum together, observe each other's lessons, and talk all the time about teaching. We are lit up with entrepreneurial drive, and the intellectual energy is palpable.
