“Creativity is Curiosity.”

― Lailah Gifty Akita

Manhattan Charter School operates two schools on New York City’s Lower East Side, each committed to providing its students with the tools and support necessary for success.

Our two small public elementary schools educate children in kindergarten through fifth grade. We believe in the importance of an intimate school culture and learning environment, so there are never more than 25 students in an MCS class.
