Our Partners


Facing History and Ourselves logo

Facing History and Ourselves provides a framework for schools, through an integrated model, to implement high-quality teaching in safe and inclusive classrooms, to promote engagement through learning, and foster meaningful civic participation. S2 is thankful to be part of the Facing History and Ourselves’ New York Partnership Schools Network.


Amplify logo

Amplify inspires students to work harder and aim higher, and invigorate teachers with new ways to truly personalize learning. Their print and digital curriculum products engage and challenge students, and were developed specifically with college and career readiness in mind. S2 is partnering with Amplify in English Language Arts and Science classes.


People's Theatre Project logo

People's Theatre Project (PTP) is a Washington Heights based Arts and Social Justice organization founded in 2009. PTP creates the space and provides the tools for people of all ages to become “community actors” - expressive and critically thinking global citizens.


Play Rugby logo

Play Rugby uses the unique power of rugby to empower and inspire youth, primarily from underserved communities, to go forward and realize their true potential. In their first year, S2’s students loved playing flag rugby, and we are thrilled to continue this partnership in our second year.


Blue Engine logo

Blue Engine is an innovative education service model working in partnership with public schools serving low-income communities to give teachers access to trained Blue Engine Teaching Assistants (BETAs) for an entire school year. Working alongside teams of 3-4 BETAs, teachers have the instructional bandwidth and efficiency to teach a more rigorous academic curriculum. S2 is proud to be Blue Engine’s first charter school partnership.


Blue Engine logo

Divine Appetite's goal is to use food to impact youth, nutritionally, emotionally and politically. Why do children in urban communities get titles like “At Risk”  instead of “Purposeful?” There are limitless opportunities to earn titles in America, all youth deserve the “privilege” to earn one that is Auspicious! This all begins with fueling their minds and bodies with raw ingredients, food science and personalized engagement.
