All Urban Assembly schools were created based on the premise that small schools with compelling themes, strong partners, flexible hiring and innovative teaching practices can provide a top notch education to students who would otherwise attend large high schools. We strive for excellence in our schools and our organization, and are committed to leading by example to strengthen broad scale public education in this country.
