At the Urban Assembly, we believe that every child deserves a high-quality public education. In partnership with the NYC Department of Education, the UA has created a family of 23 small, career-themed, high-performing middle and high schools that are open to all students - without screening or testing. UA schools outperform other schools in the public school system with better test scores and higher graduation rates, and our graduates are fully college- and career-ready with the solid academic, technical, and social-emotional skills to excel in their post secondary lives.
