Mission Statement

It is the mission of Our World Neighborhood Charter School to educate our students to become independent-thinkers and lifelong learners. We are committed to an educational philosophy based on inquiry, active and experiential learning, and social justice. Through a literacy-based, integrated and standards-driven curriculum that encourages community and honors diversity, OWN students receive the broad education they will need to meet the academic and social challenges of the best New York City High Schools, and indeed, to thrive in today's world.

Description

Our World Neighborhood Charter School opened its doors on September 30, 2002 and began a new page in the history of public education in New York City. The charter school, that teaches K-8 grade, is an outgrowth of the Astoria Parents Network, which was formed by parents concerned about overcrowding in the local public schools and who were discouraged by lack of opportunities for meaningful parent involvement in the local schools.
