Our Insights

What’s Special

Small school based on a successful Harlem charter

The Downside

Little recent information on culture and tone

Based on the model of Amber Charter School in East Harlem, Amber Charter School Kingsbridge offers small classes and Spanish language instruction in all grades. Opened in Washington Heights in 2016, the new school moved to its permanent location in 2017.

Teachers gave high marks to the administration in its first year and overwhelmingly said they would recommend it to parents, according to school surveys. Parents flooded InsideSchools with positive comments. There is little information available on culture and tone in more recent years. State test scores are very high.

Principal Veronica Almedina was assistant principal at the original Amber Charter School in East Harlem which was founded in 2000 with support from The Community Association of Progressive Dominicans. 

SPECIAL EDUCATION: Special education services include counseling, speech, a special education teacher, occupational therapy and access to physical therapy off campus, according to the school website.

ADMISSIONS: Lottery. An application is available on the school’s website (Lydie Raschka, web reports, July 2020)
