We now know how a so-called overnight sensation feels when stardom is achieved only after years of preparation, learning, and experience!
TECCS has exploded on the educational scenes, opening a very special new public charter school in Jersey City, and simultaneously opening another in Brooklyn, New York. The enthusiastic reception by civic and education officials, along with equal or even greater response from parents who enrolled their children in our schools is nothing short of thrilling.
Of course, these successful openings did not just happen overnight. Our very high standards and adherence to our basic philosophy of an ethics-based curriculum and culture along with rigorous academics required intensive effort on our part.
Our Foundation found exceptional individuals for school boards in each city. Parents, some seeking a great school for their children, and others, without children, who believed in our mission of serving the underserved, joined our team.
With civic approval in hand, our School Boards found highly talented, skilled principals and enthusiastic, dedicated teachers, assistant teachers, teaching specialists, social workers and administration staffs.
This already credentialed educational staff underwent extra training in the ethics-based culture that undergirds our program. We secured and enhanced first-rate facilities, and our schools enrolled 240 eager children.
After eight years of maintained vision, unswerving commitment, and intensive work, we opened our first two schools.
Now, after nearly two years in operation, our schools are demonstrating the fulfillment of their mission: to serve inner city children with an extraordinary education grounded in ethics, social justice, and community service.
We welcome you to visit the individual web pages of the schools: teccs-jc and teccs-ny.
