Equality Charter High School

Preparing our scholars for the world ahead.
Career and college readiness

Managers of their own independence, our scholars are able to face the challenges of today’s world with maturity and patience, keeping their eye on the goal: to be successful both academically and personally.

We stay focused on mastering the tools needed to live effectively in the world.

Parent discussions, scholar advisories and staff feedback / focus groups help all of us stay aligned with our shared goal — ensuring each Equality graduate has the greatest possible chance of success in the next step of their journey, whether it’s going to college, starting their career, or a combination of those two.

A Well-Rounded Curriculum

Equality does not expect every scholar to be a masterful mathematician, reader, artist or scientist when they join us.

We provide remediation in literacy and math for anyone who comes to us below grade level. We are intentional in providing scaffolds and supports, and we are careful to reduce those supports as each scholar achieves new levels of independence.

We nurture and engage scholars with disabilities. On average, we serve a higher population of Students with Disabilities (SWDs) than our comparison district schools. Our SWD Program provides individualized supports for all scholars inside of the mainstream classroom, along with a variety of additional remediation services.

We welcome those who have not yet attained proficiency in English. Our English Language Learning Program results in ELL graduation rates that far exceed the District and New York City results.
