Our Insights

East Harlem Scholars Academy Charter School II is a charter school in East Harlem, serving grades Pre-K through 7.

In the Pre-K classes, teachers ask children questions, invite back-and-forth conversation to develop language skills, and promote mutual respect and positive social interactions. Children are encouraged to communicate and learn language skills through books, puppets or blocks. They have lots of time to talk and ask questions.

Charter schools are tuition-free schools that operate independently of the city Department of Education, and because of this have a lot of leeway over things like discipline codes, school year/day lengths and teaching philosophies. Charter schools can range from super traditional and strict to super progressive with lots of student freedom. Be sure to ask questions when you visit. Most give priority to children who live in the school district in which the school is located and each school runs its own lottery and enrollment process. Check the school's own website for the application and due date listed under "contact" on this page.
