Equality's #Day1 Declaration!


Equality stands up against bullying!

Watch the 6th Grade Student Council of Equality Charter School stand up to bullying through the #Day1 Declaration!




This free, easy-to-use bullying prevention initiative from the Tyler Clementi Foundation is being used by schools throughout the nation to unify students in embracing diversity and making commitment to end bullying, harassment and humiliation online and offline in their communities.

Councilmember Andy King

Councilmember Andy King has always been a supporter of Equality Charter School and the Co-Op City Community for the past few years. He has attended our middle school graduation ceremony, National Junior High School induction ceremony, and recently gave a grant of over $800k to our middle school to upgrade our playground, which we also share with PS 160 and PS 178.



Last week Executive Director Caitlin Franco and Director of Adult Programming Errol Olton met with Mr. King's staff  Antonia Frampton and Brian Melford to discuss all of Equality's future plans and to thank Councilmember Andy King for his support. We thank them for their time and support!

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. was featured in a NY Times article "Five Leaders on New York's Five Boroughs." We are extremely proud of Mr. Diaz and all of his accomplishments.


As stated in the article, "He was raised in the South Bronx, spending his first two years in public housing. “I used to play in rubble,” he said. “I used to do back flips on top of old dirty mattresses, with my brother and the guys on the block.” " He is an inspiration for our Bronx scholars.


This year, Equality is honoring him at our Spring Reception. We look forward to seeing you all there!
