About New World Preparatory

New World Preparatory

New World Preparatory (NWP) opened its doors in September 2010.  At full capacity, the school will house 375 sixth through eighth grade students.  NWP’s student body will reflect the community’s rich cultural diversity, one that includes a high recent immigrant population.

Located on Staten Island’s north shore, NWP is a charter middle school that celebrates diversity and is committed to teaching tolerance.  The school’s key design elements include: academic rigor and relevance; personalization; strong professional development; and engaging families and the larger school community as critical partners.

NWP will provide students with a curriculum weighted in English Language Arts and reinforced language arts skills in all of the traditional core subjects – social studies, English Language Arts, math, and science.  The school will have a directed focus on Civic Leadership and Social Justice, emphasizing the importance of improving community life, seeking justice for all peoples and caring for one another.  The school’s academic program will also include Spanish, health, physical education, consumer sciences, career development and occupational sciences and the arts.  NWP will provide structured time to support the social and emotional needs of each student.  Students in all grades will participate in an advisory program that will further develop adult-student relationships to support learning and emotional development.  Each student will be assigned a single teacher to serve as their advisor, with each teacher responsible for a core group of students.
