Mission Statement

The East Harlem School educates middle school students (grades 4-8) from East Harlem who wish to rise to their academic potential. The East Harlem School values teaching children who exhibit a desire to learn, and an eagerness to embrace new challenges. The East Harlem School recruits children from families with low income and helps these students develop academic excellence, moral integrity, courtesy, and an unshakeable commitment to their future and the fate of their community.

Description

Founded in 1993 by Hans and Ivan Hageman, the East Harlem School at Exodus House is an independent school for low-income students. EHS seeks to develop in its students a sense of themselves as creative, self-reliant and responsible members of their communities. EHS fosters intellectual, moral, athletic and emotional development through a rigorous, multi-faceted curriculum, individual tutorials, a comprehensive physical education and arts program, as well as numerous travel opportunities. In December of 2008, the school's new building was completed. It is the first building built in East Harlem for the sole purpose of being an independent school.
