Overview

Achievement First Endeavor Middle School was recently ranked the fourth best K to eight school in all of New York City (out of nearly 1,100 schools!) on the NYC DOE Progress Reports. Character building is at the heart of the school’s teaching philosophy. Students participate in daily advisories that address peer interaction, conflict resolution and personal growth. Students are pushed out of their comfort zones and into situations that allow them to build confidence. For instance, sixth graders went camping and explored caves on last year’s end-of-year school trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Through the school’s Kindness Campaign, students are rewarded for acts of kindness with Mardi Gras beads. Achievement First Endeavor is proud of its team and clubs, especially the Rhythm and Funk Jazz Band and the boys’ basketball team, which won the NYC Charter School Athletic League Championship.
