Go, ECS! It's Your Birthday!​

Celebrating 15 years of excellence in education for everyone.




Our Purpose: To transform lives through education

Equality’s purpose is to affect transformative change in the lives of all the people in our community — the parents, the political leadership, the alumni and scholars, and our future children.

All in the Numbers


Next Level Readiness

We are #1 in our district at preparing Middle School students for High School.


Graduation Rates

Scholars from ECMS who also attended ECHS graduated at a higher rate than their City and District counterparts.


Free / Reduced Lunch

We provide equal opportunities in education to economically disadvantaged communities.

We focus on systemic growth, instead of just test scores.

Equality’s curriculum systematically reinforces incremental growth in core academic courses, while ensuring that our scholars have the personal and emotional resources needed to be successful in life after graduation.

We believe in meeting our scholars where they are and working with them to develop the tools they will need to excel, wherever their life journey may take them.

-Janelle Wray, 11th grade

"Miss Simmons is very new to this school but during her time here she shows how thoughtful and caring of a teacher she is. She also treat us like her own kids."

-Modou Ndure, 8th grade

"Our teacher [Mr. Kennabrew] taught us not only about the classroom, but also about the real world and gave us an 8th grade experience that will last a lifetime."

-Elani Wyatt, 10th grade

"Ms. Collins went above and beyond with taking care and attending to ECS scholars, who are forever grateful. She has helped scholars emotionally and academically."

-Tajah Stephens, 7th grade

"Mr. Goodbridge is a tough and strict teacher and he has a personality that will make you feel like a better person about yourself."

Collaboration & Community

We are a community of passionate individuals, committed to transforming education in the Bronx. We believe that hiring and keeping high-quality teachers is what makes the difference in a child’s education at Equality.

Working with us requires an open mind, a commitment to hard work, and faith in the long game. We do our best to find the right positions for everyone, where they are engaged, challenged, and successful.
