To keep our kids progressing toward college and career, Harlem Children’s Zone Promise Academy Elementary School focuses on building strong foundational skills.
Scholars receive rigorous instruction in a variety of subjects: math, language arts, history, social studies, and the sciences. Through our interdisciplinary approach, scholars build a strong academic foundation, develop critical thinking skills, and prepare for the state’s Common Core standards.
Scholars also engage in regular physical and nutritional education and enjoy exposure to the arts, music, and the vast cultural opportunities that New York City has to offer.
Non-cognitive skills are crucial to long-term academic and personal success. Character development is therefore a central component of the curriculum. Through clubs and group discussions, scholars learn about and cultivate key traits such as integrity, perseverance, empathy, confidence, and determination.
Graduates leave Harlem Children’s Zone Promise Academy Elementary School with a strong love of learning and a deep appreciation for engagement in their community. They leave ready to thrive in middle school.
