Inwood Academy Charte School is an amazing school. Children and parents are welcome and treated with care and respect. The staff goes out of their way for the kids and each child is treated as an individual. Not every child learns at the same pace and IAL works to make each child feel special and cared for. I will always sing praises about the school. Thank you for helping both of my children to become interested in learning.

Inwood Academy for Leadership Charter School (IAL) is a free, family-oriented, teacher-run school. We are committed to excellence and choice in public education for the families of Inwood, Washington Heights, and Upper Manhattan and are delivering on that commitment. IAL's academic program is designed to inspire students' intellectual curiosity and confidence. Our program utilizes the NYS Common Core Standards to pair content knowledge with skills development. All IAL scholars take classes in four core subjects - English Language Arts, Science, Social Studies and Mathematics - as well as Art, Language, Music, Writing, PE and Health. We provide intensive support and remediation for all English Language Learners as well as students scoring below grade level. This support includes multiple teaching "specialists," proven math/reading remediation programs and our Summer Boot Camp combined with after-school and Saturday classes.

This school is wonderful. Even though they are going to have a high school they encouraged us to apply to other schools but I'm definitely staying there. They try to be really honest with us. If we do something disappointing we have a school wide meeting. We try to express the idea of family and being able to trust one another. It's like a home outside of home. Anyone can find where they belong and feel loved and cared for.
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
school, at home and in their community. We are a national non-profit with offices and programs
in Oakland, Milwaukee, Washington D.C. and Indianapolis.
