Inside AltSchool Union Square
Citizenship, agency, responsibility, empathy: These are the student-created community values of AltSchool Union Square. Located in the heart of Manhattan, our Union Square campus takes full advantage of the diverse New York City ecosystem and invites students to explore learning beyond the classroom through museums, landmarks, and cultural sites. Our students collaborate regularly with local organizations like the YMCA and Third Street Music, where they have access to arts and recreational experiences as well as the opportunity to practice citizenship. Flexibly designed spaces within our school support a wide variety of learner-centric experiences, including collaboration and community-building. Take a peek!
