Welcome to TCCS

  • Welcome

    TCCSTeachers College and the New York City Department of Education opened Teachers College Community School in September 2011.  It is a non-selective school that is intended to demonstrate how affiliation with a higher education institution can lead to effective implementation of comprehensive educational services in an urban, community public school. Opening with Kindergarten, the school is phasing in one grade a year. When fully enrolled, the school will serve approximately 300 children in Grades Pk-8.

    We hope you will navigate the site, explore our vision and learn more about our plans for the community school. Use the navigation at the top to find out more.


Jeanene Worrell-Breeden
The TC community mourns the untimely passing of Jeanene Worrell-Breeden, the founding principal of the Teachers College Community School. Principal Breeden was a tireless champion for all of the children of TCCS, and she will be greatly missed by students, families, staff, and her friends at Teachers College.
