NEW YORK CHESS ACADEMY & OUR WORLD NEIGHBORHOOD
Our World Neighborhood Charter School (OWNCS) is devoted to providing educational opportunities and promoting independent and lifelong learning, particularly in underserved communities. At the core of their vision lies cultural diversity and education, fostering an inclusive and open mindset in its students. Through its ten pillars, OWNCS reinforces virtuous outlooks and a diversified curriculum. It is OWNCS’ focus on inclusivity and equal opportunity that makes it such an excellent match for NYCA, as both organizations aim to make every child feel welcome.
OWNCS also aims to build its students’ skills in a vast range of activities, including a large selection of sports. Many of these activities also include parent volunteers, further cementing OWNCS into its community.
