Equality Charter School (http://www.equalitycharterschool.org/) provides a high level of academic rigor in a nurturing learning community that will prepare scholars to be career-ready in college. Our mission is to ensure each scholar reaches individual academic and personal success through a nurturing, scholar-centered approach; and our approach is to serve any scholar, including those who are under-performing or who are from families in need of more resources.

We offer a positive school environment, we value academic, behavioral, and social-emotional needs, we use proactive strategies for teaching appropriate behaviors, and we use MTSS to engage scholars. Our holistic programming focuses on career exploration, extensive athletics, art, health, and a host of special days, like career day and a borough-wide college fair.

Advantages of teaching at Equality include an emphasis on knowledge-sharing practices, frequent training and targeted professional development opportunities and opportunities for teacher leadership within the organization.
