Charter Schools Have an Educator Taking Care of Them

Eva Moskowitz is an important figure in the history of the United States. She is the person who launched the Success Academy Education Institute, a charter network that aims to improve the education system, and she also did it by sending to thousands of schools her reading lessons for students to learn from that.



Any interested teacher or educator can head to a condo that the network from Eva Moskowitz bought to serve this exact reason. Many tutors are calling the founder of the idea to be able to learn with her at the condo where she is giving lessons on how to improve the education.



According to the philanthropist Moskowitz, reading is a highly important habit that needs to be passed down to children as their number one priority. By reading, students are increasing their horizons and unlocking new doors for their future and education. It is a truly amazing tool that needs to be taught at schools.



Teachers of all over the country agree with the statements of the specialist and are following her education steps. Her program has improved the methods of dozens of educators, by changing their core ideas of how to teach a subject, and really presenting the most important aspects of learning something at school.



Specialists say that one of the most valuable assets for the development of a student’s habit is to create things. As creators, students are able to improve their horizons by being creative and making things that are useful or meaningful for them or for society.



Through her Success Academy Education Institute, Eva Moskowitz has already some of her methods to more than 15,000 educators, and it significantly increased at the launch of her program. That is not the end of it: Right now, her teaching network has improved the methods of over forty schools around the nation, developing new tactics and ways to teach kids the importance of reading and being creative.



According to educators and business owners in the area, the methods that push kids forward on developing their own critical thinking are the most powerful ways of teaching for a student’s brain under development. Eva Moskowitz’s program is changing lives of students for the better by introducing them to new forms of thinking.

In New York City alone, the program has achieved double the expected for June 2017, hitting a number around 14,000 of students that are low-income and are following the education methods of Eva Moskowitz.



Right now, her network is the biggest chain of charter schools in the area.

Success Academy’s Recipe For Success

A child’s education is very instrumental during their formative years. Their education can equip them for college and for a successful life. However, our national education system isn’t always equipped to help students to learn and succeed, and as a result many children fall through the cracks and lag further and further behind. Parents may quickly become aware that public schools are failing, especially in metropolitan areas. Even well funded public schools sometimes produce dismal results. When homeschooling or private schools aren’t viable options, charter schools offer a promising alternative.


Charter schools often take students with economic and academic disadvantages and transform them with superior education and astonishing results. New York’s Success Academy public charter schools boast close to 100% proficiency rates in English and math. Success Academy believes that children learn best by doing. Their curriculum is engaging but rigorous, and teaches students core knowledge, critical thinking skills, and independence that will serve them their whole lives.


Success Academy is dedicated to each student’s long term success, and the school’s teachers and leaders collaborate to ensure the student’s academic, emotional and social welfare. Surprisingly, each day is comprised of only 80 minutes of instructional time, while the remainder of the day is made up of small group instruction and hands on learning. Rather than a monotonous day of sitting through lectures, students do the thinking so that their education is engaging and lasting.


While Success Academy offers several charter schools throughout New York City in The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens, they have only one high school in midtown Manhattan. Success Academy plans to remedy that by opening a new high school in the historic Old Bronx Borough Courthouse in Melrose. This location will allow opportunities for more students.


Success Academy Charter School students have scored among the highest-performing schools in New York State for eight consecutive years. Their scores reached the top 1% in the state for math, the top 2% for English, and the top 5% for science. Even English language learners and students with disabilities scored higher than their peers in the state, and even among English native speakers and non-disabled students.
