Manhattan Village Academy's Participation in Educational Networks

The Coalition of Essential Schools

Manhattan Village Academy is a member of the Coalition of Essential Schools. The Coalition is a national network of schools that are dedicated to instructional excellence for all students. Coalition principles focus on the student as worker. Students are actively engaged in their learning through cooperative group work and demonstration projects. Coalition schools believe in the importance of parental involvement. We believe that schools cannot work in isolation from parents. Schools and parents work together to provide the supports necessary for student success.
