Central Park East II is a progressive Community School in District 4. Our mission is to provide children in East Harlem and throughout New York City with an education that is both challenging and nurturing. By allowing children to develop at their own pace, and encouraging them to actively explore, we teach them to be critical and creative thinkers. We believe that all children are gifted readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists and artists.
Community is the bedrock of CPEII. We encourage participation from our families, and emphasize to students that they have an active role to play in the school community and beyond. We believe this teaches children the importance of taking part in society as a whole. By engaging an education that makes a difference in their lives, they learn to make a difference in the world.
PLEASE CHECK BACK IN SEPTEMBER. A TOUR SCHEDULE WILL BE POSTED.
