Situated in New York City, Icahn Charter School distinguishes itself from other schools through its use of the renowned Core Knowledge curriculum supplemented with enriching activities. Furthermore, the school creates a strong sense of community within its students, parents, and teachers, which makes it a great match for NYCA’s community-based approach. Also, as Icahn accommodates students of a wide range of ages, NYCA’s selection of programs and experience coaching kids of all ages may be utilized in full capacity. The students also work in small classes, further aligning with NYCA’s teaching style.
