Our Insights

What’s Special

Longer school day

The Downside

Structure may not appeal to some

Achievement First East New York is part of a network of charter schools that aim to bring children up to speed in preparation for college. A longer school day and year, a strict behavior code, and more hours spent on reading, writing and math are some features of the school.

Admissions: Lottery. Apply on the school website. (Clara Hemphill, website, February 2019)
