What’s Special

Longer school day and four years of math and science

The Downside

Some students say students don’t respect each other

New Visions Charter High School for Advanced Math & Science III offers four years of math and science to prepare students for careers in engineering, medicine, technology or environmental science. Class sizes average 25 students, smaller than a typical public high school.

Advanced Math & Science III is part of the New Visions Charter High Schools network, which were created by New Visions for Public Schools, a nonprofit organization that has worked to strengthen NYC public schools since 1989.

Founded in 2013, the school shares the Frank J. Macchiarola Educational Complex building with three schools, including its sister school, New Visions Charter High School for Humanities III. They are modeled after the flagship New Visions schools that opened in September 2011 in the John F. Kennedy building in the Bronx. 

Students attend school from about 8:15 am to 3:00 pm every day. There is a required summer session for new 9th and 10th graders. After school activities are available daily, offering clubs determined by student interest. Students are encouraged to try out for campus-wide sports teams such as bowling, gymnastics, baseball, softball, basketball, football and more.

Ninety percent of students graduated within four years in 2019, exceeding the citywide average. Fifty-eight percent performed well enough to to enroll at City University of New York without remedial help, compared to 48 percent boroughwide. Graduates have gone on to colleges such as SUNY Albany, Buffalo State College, Borough of Manhattan Community College, Howard University, Hunter College and Yale University, according to the New Visions website. The school offers a long list of Advanced Placement courses, including calculus. [photo courtesy New Visions]

A downside: While students feel teachers maintain order, and most feel safe in school, fewer than half said students treat one other with respect, according to school surveys. Advisors meet with their students daily. 

ADMISSIONS: All students are admitted by lottery. Students must fill out an application typically by April 1. Applications recieved after the deadline will be placed on a waitlist. Admissions is ongoing until all seats are filled. Visit for more information or email [email protected]  (Lydie Raschka, email correspondence and web reports, April 2020)
