Classical Charter Schools
Classical Charter Schools is a network of high-performing public charter schools in the South Bronx. We maintain an uncompromising but purposeful structure that liberates teachers and scholars from distraction, transforming the classroom into an environment sharply focused on learning.
Classical Charter Schools was founded in 2006 with scholars and staff in mind. As a network we aim to provide life changing opportunities for all and help to narrow the educational achievement gap in the South Bronx. We believe Classical is the best place to work if you want to have an immediate impact on scholars' life inside and outside our schools, help them achieve great results, grow as an educator and join an institution with a great culture that motivates you to succeed. We emphasize our actions to achieve and promote:
Despite serving students typically deemed ‘at-risk,’ we consistently outperform over 90% of New York schools and won the National Blue Ribbon Award for Exemplary High Performance in 2014.
We emphasize tangible measurements of success. Data drives everything from our operations systems to curriculum development so we can be sure we’re doing the best for our scholars.
As our staff members grow, so do we. We invest in the development of our people because they make our school’s success. We offer individualized professional development and direct paths to career advancement.
All staff—from teachers, to administrators, to support staff—are intensely driven to help our scholars succeed. Our culture of purposefulness, engagement, and professionalism is pervasive—we’re all working together and reinforcing each other, all the time.
