The New American Academy Charter School (TNAACS) elementary school was founded in 2013 to transform the structures of schooling through an innovative school model. Each component of our model is directly tied to the quality of teacher instruction. By incorporating components of teaching teams, career ladder, collaborative learning, grade-level cohorts, reflective practice, differentiated instruction, learning loops and multi-dimensional evaluations system we are able to attract, develop and retain our teachers. Developed at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, in collaboration with the NYC Department of Education and the United Federations of Teachers, our model is predicated on the idea that student achievement is directly tied to the quality of teacher instruction.

Guided by our core values of: humility, empowerment, aspiration, responsibility, teamwork and scholarship, all members of our community are committed to the school mission. We seek applications from both new and experienced teaching candidates who demonstrate a passion for educating the whole child. Teacher salaries are mastery-based and range from $56,000 for Apprentice teachers to $148,000 for Master teachers.
