Our Partners

School of the Future is proud to work with many organizations outside of the public school system. Some of these groups and individuals work directly with the students and faculty as consultants and volunteers and in other cooperating/observing roles. All work together to enhance the educational life at SOF. Some of our affiliates are less prominent in the day-to-day operations of the school but are essential to our continued development as a community.

The Children’s Museum of the Arts

Each year, CMA teaching artists work with our seventh graders and our ninth graders on stop-motion animation projects in their art class. Students have produced public service announcements about bullying, lessons about The Cell, and music videos. CMA exhibits SOF’s work at their museum for our families and the work is shared at our Annual Arts Showcase.

College Access For All

The College Now Program

As part of the College Now Program, SOF students who are academically eligible can take college classes at city colleges such as Hunter and Baruch for college credit. In addition, Baruch College professors come to School of the Future after school to teach ninety-minute college-accredited classes.

Gramercy Neighborhood Associates

For eighty-four years, the Gramercy Neighborhood Associates have been dedicated to the needs of the community surrounding the park and has generously added SOF as a beneficiary. GNA helps run a yearly Career Day at SOF, has donated much-needed books and supplies, and participates in our annual SOF On the Block party.

Global Glimpse

Global Glimpse believes that first-hand exposure to different countries, cultures and people is one of the most powerful educational experiences a person can have and is essential for developing a new generation of young Americans who think and act as responsible global citizens. They help to make these transformational experiences accessible to all young people regardless of their socioeconomic background.


Manhattan Youth

The New York Performance Standards Consortium

The Consortium represents twenty-eight schools across New York State. Formed in 1997, the Consortium opposes high-stakes tests, arguing that “one size does not fit all,” and has developed an assessment system that leads to quality teaching that enhances rather than compromises our students’ education.

Teachers College Reading & Writing Project at Columbia University

We work closely with Teachers College to help design our curricula in grades 6 through 10, especially in science, social studies, English, and humanities. Through our work with The Project, our teachers receive outstanding professional development, lead workshops, and host learning visits for other schools. The Teachers College Reading & Writing Project is a research and staff development organization housed at Teachers College, Columbia University. The Project’s ideas are the foundation of literacy instruction across the globe.

Theatre Development Fund

Many of our teachers work with TDF, which enables our students to see wonderful Broadway shows for free and work closely with Teaching Artists to explore the plays’ themes, craft, and connections to their classroom studies. Students have seen Wicked, Peter and the Star Catcher, and War Horse—to name a few.
