New vision for public school
A new vision for education beyond high school
New Visions for Public Schools argues that developing the professional ability of teachers, principals, and administrators is the most effective way to improve schools. Our goal is to ensure that all students in New York City public schools, regardless of race or socioeconomic status, have access to a high-quality education that prepares them for college and the workforce. We’re also committed to sharing the creative resources, tactics, and lessons learned in New Visions schools with others in New York and around the world, demonstrating that positive progress can be achieved at scale and that every child can succeed.
New Visions for Public Schools collaborates with the NYC Department of Education to fund 75+ high-needs public schools in the five boroughs, as well as 10 charter high schools in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens. New Visions’ goal is to provide students with an education that is important and meaningful today, equipping them with the resources to excel in college and beyond, in collaboration with parents and the community.

New Visions for Public Schools is a non-profit organization that helps New York City public schools. New York City Public Schools, the nation’s largest school district, serves over one million students. Almost 77 percent of New York City public school students are poor, 12.5 percent are English language learners, and 18.7% have disabilities. More than 110,000 of these students are represented by Fresh Visions in three separate New York City schools. Ten charter schools, 69 Affinity schools, and around 140 neighborhood schools are part of a citywide program to transform schools by offering robust wraparound services.
Increased on-time graduation rates were described as a key challenge to address by New Visions. New Visions mapped the pipeline to on-time graduation, defined where the system was generating the most leaks, and validated a series of improvements using quality improvement techniques. To educate and promote this work at scale, the school network developed new data and management systems at the school and district levels. Graduation rates in New Visions Affinity schools increased by 9.1 percentage points and college readiness rates increased by 16 percentage points between 2013 and last year, when this work began.
Creating a new vision for public education
If you worked on this project (as a designer or client), you can sign up for a free one-day subscription here — no credit card is needed (so ignore the footnote at the link that says you’ll be paying $1.00 USD monthly). It’s only good for 24 hours and can only be used once.
We would gladly offer a free subscription to anyone who can honestly not afford the subscription fee. There were no questions answered. There are no justifications needed. We will respect your request if you tell us you can’t afford it. Send us an email! Please note that this is not an open invitation to all students; many of you can afford two months of Brand New by missing one Starbucks drink per month.
