Amber Charter Schools

Amber Charter Schools provide our students with an academically rigorous and well-rounded education, along with strong character development, which will enable them to prosper in their future endeavors.

Amber Charter School East Harlem was founded in 2000 as the first Latino-led charter school in New York State. It currently serves 500 K-5 students. Amber Charter School Kingsbridge opened in 2016 and serves 440 K-5 students.   Amber Charter School Inwood will open in 2021, and grow to  serve 923 K-8 students. By 2025, the ACS network will serve just under 2000 students across three NYC neighborhoods.

The Amber Charter Schools network is currently undergoing an expansion process that aims to enrich the lives of both students and the community at-large. In order to realize this goal, the organization must have a robust Shared Support Team [SST] to ensure a strong focus on sustainable and scalable programming, resources and tools that meet the needs of students, parents and community stakeholders, and partnerships that are closely linked to strong student outcomes.  Reporting to the Chief Finance and Administration Officer, the Director of Network Operations will hold a critical leadership position within and closely coordinate and collaborate with other colleagues on the Shared Support Team.  She/he/they will also interface and consult with school-based leadership team members.
