Three of the four schools: The New York Center for Autism Bronx, The Urban Assembly Charter School for Computer Science, The Brilla College Preparatory Charter School at Highbridge will be in The Bronx. The fourth, Elmwood Village Charter School 2 will be in Buffalo. All of the schools are slated to open in 2017.

We are very pleased to see the acknowledgement of the innovative work done by our indie charter schools and their contributions to public education. We look forward to building strong connections with these new schools.”
