Good graduation rate for new immigrants and students with disabilities
Many students miss more than a month of school
Unity Center for Urban Technologies, a small school that shares the Norman Thomas Educational Campus with other small schools, helps struggling students stay in school and graduate, even if it takes more than four years, according to state data.
Most students enter with weak academic skills, and attendance is poor. Nearly half the students miss more than a month of school. However, graduation rates for general education students as as well as students with disabilities and English Language Learners are above the citywide average.
Teachers have time to collaborate and plan their lessons together, according to the Quality Review.
As for the technology theme, “a lot of work is done on computers,” a teacher told InsideSchools, mentioning iPads, laptops and Smart boards.
The building has metal detectors.
Admissions: In recent years the school has had room for all applicants. (Clara Hemphill, DOE statistics, September 2018; updated May 2020 with new graduation rate info)
