The East Harlem Tutorial Program, a great organization that has had a lot of success in helping students succeed, will be opening the East Harlem Scholars Academy next fall. It’s now accepting applications for first grade and kindergarten until April 1st. Interested parents should attend an open house session next Wednesday, March 30th at 6:30 p.m. at 2053 Second Avenue, near 105th Street.
The new school promises to have great teachers, a low student to teacher ratio, and daily art, gym and Spanish classes. In addition there will one-to-one small group tutoring every day. Preference for admission will be given to East Harlem residents.
As I’ve stated in previous posts, good schools located uptown are hard to find, which makes East Harlem Academy opening next year a blessing.
