School in the Square (S2) engages, educates and empowers adolescents in Washington Heights to respond mindfully and creatively to life’s opportunities and challenges. S2 draws its name from the concept of the public square, where communities come together to solve problems and celebrate successes. We envision S2 as a place where students, families and educators are seen, heard and inspired, and where students build the academic foundations, emotional intelligence and leadership skills necessary to excel in college and professional life. In line with our commitment to equity and diversity, S2 is dedicated to serving all students by providing a differentiated and inclusive learning environment.

Welcome Back!

August 29, 2018

The new school year started strong with two days of orientation. 6th graders spent time with their new classmates, met their teachers, toured the building and learned about S2's school culture. 7th and 8th graders were welcomed back with open arms, it is so excited to see students returning after summer break, both tanner and taller! The staff and teachers worked so hard during the summer to prepare the school for our best year yet, and if orientation was any indication, it definitely will be!

Fun at Summer School!

August 15, 2018

Summer in the Square 2018 included three weeks of learning, inventing and having fun! Students used their creativity to solve a variety of invention problems such as designing a video game that incorporated wellness, considering what the phones of the future will look like and do for us, and building their own Rube Goldberg machines! We loved seeing students use their imagination to come up with some truly ingenious ideas.

On Friday June 22nd, S2 students had a wonderful time having "Happy Waffles" and receiving their certificates for another quarter of excellence!
