SCHOOL DESCRIPTION:Heketi Community Charter School is a community-grown K-5 charter school located in the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx, dedicated to providing a rigorous and nurturing environment for students while fostering a warm family-oriented school culture and a strong connection to the community at large. Heketi opened its doors in 2012, where it welcomed its very first cohort of bright ambitious students.

Our mission is to provide an exceptional educational solution through an integrated educational design with high expectations, extensive academic and social-emotional support, and a high level of family and community engagement.

Heketi’s name embraces two main elements of our mission focus. ‘Heketi’ is the Taíno word for ONE. Taínos are the indigenous people of the Caribbean, representing the heritage of a large portion of the Spanish-speaking population in the South Bronx. Heketi was born out of a desire to honor this heritage and embrace the power of multilingual literacy and reading skills for success and leadership. The meaning of Heketi, ONE, is also a recognition of what it takes to create an educational environment that ensures each child’s success. Heketi has a singular focus that integrates families, school staff, and community members all invested and united in building a community focused on achievement.
