About Equality Charter School
Located in the Bronx, NY, Equality Charter School provides a dynamic, nurturing learning environment, Equality Charter School challenges students with a rigorous middle school curriculum that prepares them for college preparatory academics in high school. Founded in 2009 by three educators, including Principal Caitlin Franco, who rejected the conventional low expectations for students at risk, the Bronx institution offers instruction in grades six through eight. The founders of Equality Charter School designed the schedule to accommodate teenagers, beginning the school day at 9 a.m. and ending it at 4 p.m., with sports, arts, and academic programs offered into the early evening. In addition to an active Parent Teacher Student Organization, Equality Charter School benefits from an expert staff of administrators, teachers, guidance counselors, and social workers who work carefully to help students in all aspects of academic and personal growth.
