About Us

Our World Neighborhood Charter Schools (OWNCS) is a group of three free public charter schools authorized by SUNY, Charter Schools Institute with the Board of Trustees of he OWNCS Education Corporation. OWNCS has a very successful academic program based on progressive pedagogical principles implemented and created by expert educators. OWNCS is committed to providing a rigorous curriculum in a caring and supportive environment to all students. Key to the success of the schools and its students is the determination to create a diverse community of learners and educators who understand that academic success can only be achieved if each child believes in himself or herself and has a cadre of supportive adults crafting learning experiences that capitalize on real world experiences. All our students must leave our schools with the keys to future success, happiness and productivity.
