Equality Charter Middle School

Engaging skills and mindsets for high school and beyond.
Preparing all scholars with the resources needed for success.

We celebrate that each scholar has unique talents, needs, goals and challenges. Moreover, we believe in meeting our scholars where they are and guiding them on a path to choose for themselves what personal success looks like.

On average, 85% of our middle school families choose to stay with Equality and continue on to our high school. This indication of parent satisfaction is one we’re proud of, and we’re committed to providing an engaged learning environment to prepare our scholars with the readiness they need straight through to graduation.

What Sets Us Apart

Small Class Sizes

Averaging between 18 and 26 scholars, with many classes having two teachers for more personalized instruction.

Aligned Social Culture

Our expectations and values change as our scholars age and develop, progressing with intention and by design.


Equality’s 6-12 model gives our scholars a familiar and uninterrupted experience as they move from Middle to High School.

Focus On Readiness

Prioritizing academic and personal growth leading to confident scholars who understand the link between school and the world of work.

“Mr. Goodridge is like a coach for Kamora and a parent when I'm not there. He communicates with me about everything relating to my child and I just appreciate him for just always being there! We love Mr Goodridge, he's great!”

— Shade McBeth, Parent, Middle School Scholar

"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."

-Elani Wyatt, 10th 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."

-Janelle Wray, 11th 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."

-Modou Ndure, 8th grade

An inclusive, 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.
