Exemplary Programs
EastSide Charter School (ESCS) provides families with exemplary programs in academics, extracurricular activities, the arts, and athletics. Our community of educators, families and students value our Habits of Work and Learning: Responsibility, Collaboration, Persistence and Courage. ESCS offers an educational option within the public school system for families and students seeking a strong academic program that invites and encourages family involvement in a student’s education.

EastSide believes deeply in the marriage of all three dimensions of student achievement: mastery of knowledge and skills, student character, and high quality student work. In order to ensure achievement for all students, we provide opportunities for students to lead their own learning through collaborative work, leadership opportunities, and engagement with authentic audiences. We survey parents regularly to determine their level of satisfaction.

Curriculum Highlights
EastSide works towards individualized measures of student achievement throughout every part of the day. To support student achievements, we create an inclusive environment where small group instruction is the norm and students are placed in groups based on individual needs. This allows for targeted instruction for all learners at all times. We have developed a high quality Pre-K program so that our K-8 teachers can remain rigorous and developmentally appropriate throughout a student’s time at EastSide.

We have a partnership with Expeditionary Learning, a student centered approach to instruction that focuses on curriculum, instruction, assessment, culture and character, and leadership as a means to drive student achievement and ownership over their education. We use the EngageNY and Springboard curricula and instill instructional practices that ensure that learning is active, challenging, meaningful, and collaborative - pushing our students to think critically and be leaders.

Every student in our school has a class called “Crew” –a structure established so that every student is known well and feels valued by the entire school community. The structure of Crew allows for relationship building, academic monitoring, and character development. Crew allows students to build positive connections with their peers and their crew leader. Additionally, we have mentoring partnerships with Barclays as well as gender specific mentoring groups that meet during and after school to support students in navigating peer and family relationships both inside and outside school. We believe that students should ultimately work to do work that is good. Good in quality and good for the world around us in order to develop strong students and citizens that are able to thrive in an ever-changing 21st century society. Every adult in our building is committed, above anything else, to do whatever it takes to support the emotional and academic needs of each student.
