Spotlight on the New World Preparatory Charter School

July 3, 2012

As the school year has wrapped up and many parents are looking ahead to the 2012-2013 school year, New Yorkers will want to take note of the many charter school opportunities in our area.  One such school is the New World Preparatory Charter School (“NWP”) managed by Victory Education Partners with Steve Klinsky.

New World Prep. is Staten Island’s first middle grade charter school, having opened in September 2010 with approximately 125 students in sixth grade.  They are expanding by one grade a year until they reach their goal of having 375 children in the system in grades 6 through 8.

Located in the Port Richmond section of Staten Island, they are home to a growing immigrant population and the school’s aim is to provide the best, research-proven strategies to raise middle school academic achievement that they can.  As they state on their website, We will build on our nation’s promise of opportunity by exemplifying the role social justice holds in shaping a community of the people, by the people and for the people. Our students will graduate from NWP with a strong academic foundation, an awareness of the needs of others, and with the social and emotional readiness needed to succeed in middle school and high school and graduate from college.

This is one of the large collection of schools operating in Pennsylvania, New York and Illinois that are being successfully managed by Victory Education Partners (Victory Schools) and that are proving that education can be viewed through a new vantage point – and that results can be achieved in creative, innovative ways.
