Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

The school is great. There curriculum is fantastic. I strongly believe that my daughter is being challenged in her math class.

My son has been in attendance at ECS from it's inception. I clearly recall the open house, where i listened to Ms. Franco share and convince me of all the reasons I should take a chance with ECS. Yes i was taking a chance enrolling my above average student in a new school after being accepted at TAG Young Scholars. Of course the first year had it's ups and downs, but along the way they worked out the kinks, and have continue to better the school. Ms Franco delivered just as she said she and her staff would, my son has done well and was appropriately challenged. If you're a parent that stays involved and your child wants to succeed ECS is a great school. My thanks to Ms. Franco and Staff.

i go to Equality and I don't like it there. When I was there last year there was pretty much good teachers ,but this year it stinks all the good teachers left and my grades went a little down.Also I think the detetion is really stupid!! there is no reason for getting detetino just becasue you didn't do your h.w , being late,and not wearing your uniform.Lastly,what I think is that the teachers wear inappropriate things to school and they think they have to earn respect with with what they are wearing!There should be a dress code for teachers and not only for students!!!!!

This school scored amongst the lowest in the Bronx; running alongside with the worst performing schools. My child compares the atmosphere to a juvenile detention. School lack textbooks and its curriculum seems undefined based on the results of grades. The students turnover is alarming in their first year of operation which demonstrates their inability to academically motivate and inspire the young scholars.

Equality Charter may not have reached its fullest potential in terms of test scores, but it surely exceeds it potential in the classrooms. The administration is supportive and encouraging of its staff, faculty and students, while ensuring an environment that is safe for all. The staff is helpful and very thorough in its communication with parents. The faculty is dedicated, talented, and qualified to teach content area material in addition to supporting the reading and writing skills of all students within all subject areas. The school's model of Co-Taught classrooms for Social Studies and Science, and Intervention Math and Reading Programs support the individual learning needs of both general and special education students. I couldn't be more pleased with Equality Charter School.
