Success Academy Emphasizes Rigor and Personal Support

With rigor and joy as the guiding principles, Success Academy believes schools should be inspiring houses of learning where student engagement is the number one priority. With that in mind it has created a content-rich curriculum that is constantly being refined and improved. Because it is a charter school it has the autonomy to be nimble about making changes when something isn’t working for its scholars.

De Blasio’s Cynical Way to Crush Children’s Dreams

Here’s a tale of two cities for you: The villain is Mayor de Blasio, sentencing hundreds of minority, low-income schoolchildren to the educational guillotine.The mayor’s minions refuse to offer adequate space for new Success Academy middle schools. There’s ample room in buildings near the primary schools the children now attend, but the city Department of Education wants to make them travel long distances — forcing fifth-graders in Southeast Queens to tramp up to the South Bronx.

Last week, the city falsely announced — without Success Academy’s input or community engagement — that it had resolved Success’ requests for space to accommodate hundreds of our rising middle schoolers. But this woefully inadequate proposal leaves hundreds of graduating elementary students educationally homeless and discriminates against the highest-achieving public charter students not just in the city and state, but in the nation. That is why Success Academy is rejecting the city’s proposal.

Don’t Mess With Success: The City Begrudges a Highly Successful Charter School Network the Space it Needs to Thrive

Success Academy, the city’s — no, the nation’s — top-performing public charter school network by every objective measure, is growing year after year, giving ever more children the opportunity to get an exemplary education. All they need is ample, decently located classroom space. Last week, Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña delivered what she claimed was an answer to those needs. It turned out to be too few classrooms in all the wrong places.

On Monday, Fariña offered a pathetic response to requests for middle-school space from the Success Academy Network.Success wanted space for four middle schools (two in Brooklyn, one in The Bronx and one in Queens) plus reallocation of space at two existing middle schools. Fariña only provided two schools — slapping families in Rosedale, West Harlem, Cobble Hill and Williamsburg. It’s simply obscene that a chancellor and mayor who claim to care about children are instead doing their best to crush kids’ dreams.

It’s Time for NYC School Bosses to Keep Promises to Charter-School Kids

Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña last Thursday made public charter-school families a promise. At a town hall meeting in Brooklyn, she told parents of rising middle-schoolers sitting in the audience that “we have full expectation to, within the next week or two before Thanksgiving, giving you a placement, and we will be announcing it soon.” Her words were certainly a step in the right direction. Unfortunately, as public-charter families have learned, talk is cheap when it’s coming from the de Blasio administration.
