Notice: It has come to our attention that students and families may be receiving an email telling them to throw away Uncommon Chromebooks. This is spam email and is NOT from Uncommon Schools. DO NOT throw away any Uncommon Chromebooks.

Partnering with Families

Partnering with families is vital to ensuring the success of our students and schools. We recognize that we cannot fulfill our mission of preparing students to enter, succeed in, and graduate from college without the support of our families. Family events are held at each campus at least once every two months. Flyers and messages inviting families to upcoming meetings and events are sent home with students.

In addition to campus events, Uncommon NYC is committed to maintaining frequent communication with our families by offering the following: back-to-school nights and family potluck dinners, campus newsletters and postcards, family conferences, monthly progress reports, end-of-quarter report cards, and more.
