Working hand in hand with the Principal, our Education Managers function as active members of our school leadership teams on a career path that ultimately can lead to an Assistant Principal or Principal track. It requires capacity to develop a holistic understanding of our school model to diagnose data trends, create educational plans, and help scholars and families get special education services to, ultimately, drive change in educational practice.

We are scaling to 100 great schools serving 50,000 children across New York City, bringing transformational change here and across the country. We believe all children, regardless of zip code or family income, deserve the life-changing opportunities that a world-class education brings.

To achieve exceptional results for children, we hire the best, and the brightest. We value excellence, ethics, and celebrate diversity, and are relentlessly committed to improving ourselves and our work to enhance the lives of our scholars.
