El Puente is a community human rights institution that promotes leadership for peace and justice through the engagement of members (youth and adult) in the arts, education, scientific research, wellness and environmental action.
Community Schools support the social, emotional, physical, and academic needs of students by offering a coordinated approach to increasing opportunities for young people and improving the academic performance of students through partnerships among principals, parents, teachers, and community-based organizations (CBOs).
El Puente partnered with MS 50 in 2014. Since this partnership began, MS 50 has grown into one of the best community schools in New York City. Attendance has increased; student, family and teacher satisfaction has increased and most recently, we doubled our ELA proficiency rates.
MS 50 El Puente Community School is a model for how school transformation can be made with the support and guidance of students, families, educators and the surrounding community. We are currently in the third year of their transformation to a full-scale community school. A community school seeks to support students socially, emotionally, physically and academically and utilizes resources creatively to be able to meet the needs and interests of students, families and communities. Instead of top-down decision making, MS 50 El Puente Community School is challenging previous school reform models by demonstrating that involving multiple stakeholders in the decision making process creates better results for long-term change.
