La Cima Elementary Charter School is a National School of Character located in historic Bedford-Stuyvesant. We are committed to creating change-makers in our communities by crafting an academic program that centralizes critical thinking and social justice values.

Teachers inspire analytical thinking skills by using an inter-disciplinary, Common Core-aligned, humanities program explored through world history, current events and social justice issues.  This is part of a curriculum to promote collaboration and positive risk-taking that culminates in a cultural exchange in Paris for all eligible 5th graders. To learn more about our curriculum, click here.

We are proud to continue applying restorative justice and mindfulness practices in our school community, to promote respect, responsibility, and relationship-building among our scholars. These enable scholars to become effective changemakers in the greater community! Click here for more information about our mindfulness and restorative justice practices.
