Our Population

We serve grade 9 students who are in their 1st year of high school and reside in NYC. Our students come from all 5 boroughs and are very diverse. General education students, students with individualized education plans, and students who are learning English as a new or second language are welcome at A School Without Walls. We will add a new 9th grade of about 120 students each year until we offer instruction to students in grades 9-12.
