Community School District 1 brings students and educators together in inclusive, PreK-12 learning environments in New York City’s Lower East Side.

Visions and Values

We are committed to continuous improvement in providing equitable and accessible learning experiences through a culturally responsive and anti-racist approach to meet the needs of our diverse community of learners. Our community is dedicated to collective ownership and personalized learning that fosters student agency and independence.

We value joy, equity, collaboration, and innovation and strive to live these values across all learning settings and modalities. As a result, our students will be adaptive leaders, change-makers, and empowered members of our modern digital world.

Joy. We learn best when there is joy in the process.

Equity. We all have the resources and access to learning needed to be successful.

Collaboration. We learn from each other and local and global partners.

Innovation. We are constantly adapting instruction driven by our students interests and passions.
