New Visions for Public Schools is the leading non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement of public education in New York City. Today, we support over 700 public schools and thousands of teachers, serving 450,000 students, in their most critical work: deciding what and how to teach, helping keep students on track to graduation, and preparing students for success beyond high school. New Visions directly manages a network of 10 charter high schools across the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens.
New Visions AIM Charter High School I and New Visions AIM Charter High School II are small, close-knit, family-oriented communities where dedicated staff members work to ensure that over-age, under-credited students graduate from high school, thoroughly prepared to excel academically, professionally, and personally. Whether students have previously struggled in school or are at risk of dropping out, the schools provide the supports, experiences, and opportunities to help them excel academically and graduate high school.
