Central Park East II School is a small, progressive, public school located in East Harlem. Our mission is to provide progressive, PK-8th grade education to children in East Harlem, as well as to children in New York City. By challenging children through active exploration of content and by allowing them to develop at their own pace, we teach them to be critical and creative thinkers, readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists and artists. Furthermore, by emphasizing their place in the school community, as well as our school’s place in the civic community, we aim to inculcate in them the importance of taking part in society as a whole. We want our children to be activists who make a difference in the world.
