TCCS2011

TC gathers its education policy faculty across a range of disciplines into a new centralized unit called the Department of Education Policy and Social Analysis (EPSA), serving as a central academic hub for the College’s education policy work across all phases of educational and human development with both a national and global focus.

Teachers College partners with and the New York City Department of Education to open Teachers College Community School (TCCS), a new public elementary school. TCCS is a university-assisted, non-selective, community school that applies state-of-the-art knowledge and best practices in teaching, learning and child development. The educational program is designed to develop each student’s knowledge and skills, love of learning and individual strengths as the foundation for academic and life success. A focus on global awareness celebrates the diversity of the community and prepares students for the social demands of the 21st century. The school's vision also integrates delivery of services for children and families that help students optimize educational opportunities. Supplementary educational services including early childhood programming, family literacy, after school programming, as well as social and health services are provided.
