Manhattan Charter School operates two schools on New York City’s Lower East Side, each committed to providing its students with the tools and support necessary for success.
Our two small public elementary schools educate children in kindergarten through fifth grade. We believe in the importance of an intimate school culture and learning environment, so there are never more than 25 students in an MCS class.

MCS provides students a rigorous curriculum of core subjects to help ensure high levels of academic achievement. We are committed to offering a well-rounded education designed to help students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills. All students receive music instruction each and every day. Other enrichment programs include French, art, physical education, and technology, beginning in Kindergarten.
MCS students are from a variety of backgrounds. The majority live in the neighborhood and qualify for free or reduced price lunch. Our schools pride themselves on delivering challenging, standards-driven instruction and fostering a culture of high expectations. Through its work, MCS is demonstrating that all children, regardless of race or economic status, can succeed when given equal access to quality education.
