Save for College Program: NYC Scholarship Month

The NYC Kids RISE Save for College Program is a scholarship and savings program designed to make college and career training more accessible for all NYC public school students regardless of family income or immigration status. Through the Program, every eligible student enrolled in an NYC public school automatically receives an NYC Scholarship Account with an initial $100 allocation on their behalf.

12-15-22 Protest

At approximately 9:15 today, students from our campus walked out of the building in protest of the proposed co-location of a Kindergarten through 4th grade Success Academy charter school. This action was planned by students and parents and was not sanctioned by the teachers or administrators of this campus.
