SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE MANHATTAN
SCHOOL DESCRIPTION: School of the Future (SOF) is an example of New York City public education that works. It is a gem of a place where students transform intellectually, emotionally, and socially. SOF is a small, secondary school that serves children from sixth grade to twelfth grade in Manhattan’s District Two. As many of our Middle School students choose to stay for High School, we enjoy the unique opportunity to foster our students’ growth from the time they leave elementary school to the time they are accepted into college. SOF is a dynamic learning community, and our staff comprises dedicated, intelligent, and caring professionals. We are a college preparatory school that offers rigorous academics geared toward college expectations. Many aspects of our program offer a unique and deeply connected student experience: including an average class size of twenty-five; the prioritizing of critical and creative thinking; strong teacher collaboration; a diverse, integrated student body; and the ability to see and know our students well as learners and individuals. Students are afforded many special opportunities that expose them to the richness of world beyond traditional school. Examples include internships, a strong art and theater program, a computer science program, competitive sports, courses at local colleges, foreign exchange trips, and frequent field trips, including trips to other US cities. While today’s political climate emphasizes high stakes testing, SOF values assessment that reflects authentic college and career expectations. Our guiding principle when designing curriculum and assessments for our students is that students should be grappling with ideas and skills that matter to their futures. So, we value research, argumentative speaking and writing, teamwork, personal reflection, problem solving, and innovative thinking. These values are reflected in every assignment and project the students complete.
