As one of the highest performing charter networks in New York City, Classical Charter Schools is having a meaningful impact on education in the South Bronx. Recognized as a National Blue Ribbon Award-Winning network, Classical Charter Schools outperforms 85% of New York charters by providing a transformative education through a curriculum that includes art, music, Latin, debate and character education.
All our teachers share the undying belief that maximizing student achievement is their primary goal. Our teachers have a razor-sharp focus on the school’s mission and the drive to meet their key responsibilities:
Leading all scholars to gap-closing academic gains. Scholars must achieve mastery and advanced mastery of grade-level Common Core State Standards to succeed to and through college.
Establishing and maintaining a highly structured classroom culture where scholars demonstrate respect, responsibility, caring, trustworthiness, fairness, and citizenship.
Our teachers work relentlessly to achieve these challenging, mission-critical goals. Successful teachers:
Study, practice, and execute lessons that lead scholars to master daily standard-aligned objectives, faithfully using our rigorous, classical curriculum.
Revise lessons for clarity, rigor and relevance, with guidance and support from instructional coaches.
Collect and analyze academic and behavior data to pinpoint scholar needs.
Collaborate in teams and with coaches to resolve challenges and implement instructional improvements driven by quantitative and qualitative data.
Proactively seek and implement feedback from team leaders and coaches to improve their practice.
Above all, our teachers care deeply about their scholars, who inspire them to achieve life’s greatest joy: doing good work well.
