About This School

Our World Neighborhood Charter School is located in Astoria, NY and is one of 5 schools in Our World Neighborhood Charter School District. It is a charter school that serves 706 students in grades K-8.

Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Our World Neighborhood Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Our World Neighborhood Charter School Reviews

Great school, loving environment

By a Parent on

The school has very high expectations.  I think students come in with varying needs and varying levels of preparation.  The school does a very good job of addressing these diverse trends, but I think could still do better.  Exceptional students could be given more accelerated learning targets, and students in need should be given greater amounts of mentoring, support, and counseling.  The school could take greater advantage of its k-8 population, and get some of its advanced middle schoolers to pair up with the younger children in need, serving as Big Brothers and Sisters.  Would also be great if the school complemented the new mayor's neighborhood school initiative, and add in a range of social services for some of its families in need.  But all of this is to say that the school achieves great things and, with a bit more support, can top the heap.
