About Uncommon Schools

Uncommon Schools is a nonprofit network of high-performing, public charter schools providing an outstanding K-12 education in historically under-resourced communities. We have proudly built schools that reflect our student population, with more than 60% of our teachers and staff across our network identifying as a person of color. Uncommon currently manages 57 schools serving more than 21,000 students in six cities: Boston, Camden, New York City, Newark, Rochester, and Troy. We are proud that Uncommon graduates persist in and graduate from college at five times the rate of their peers nationally. We achieve this by offering strong academic, co-curricular, and social-emotional learning that prepares students for success in college and beyond.


Summer Teaching Fellow

May 2021 - June 2021 Newark, NJ
β€œIn the internship with Uncommon, I experienced a lot of professional growth. I was constantly being held accountable and always received constructive feedback, Throughout the program, I received real-time feedback from my mentors and peers. With constant feedback and different professional development, I really felt supported and confident to succeed in teaching after this program. This program gave me a different perspective on how to approach teaching by making it more interactive and individually tailored for each student. I loved how I felt like I was apart of a family. Thank you STF for such a great experience. ”
