WHO WE ARE
We are friends of New York City public schools. Whether we attended public school for a short time or a long while, whether we graduated or not. We are the teachers, the administrators, the volunteers. We are the parents, doing what we can to provide for our children. We are the grandchildren of public school students who worked so hard back then to provide for us today. And we are the everyday New Yorkers looking to make a difference in our communities.
Whether our educational experience was one of extraordinary strength or one of frustration, there is one thing we all have in common: our desire to make public schools stronger and better. Please join us in this effort.
We are privileged to have a strong Alumni Council of public school alumni who provide inspiration and motivation for our city’s 1.1 million public school students:
