Yorkville Community School is a neighborhood elementary school that opened on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in September 2009. We opened our doors with four kindergarten classes, and have been adding a new grade each year; last year was our first year as a full K-5 school. Our school is located in a neighborhood that is rich with cultural institutions, parks, historic landmarks, family run businesses and community based organizations. We pride ourselves in the relationships that we have been developing with these organizations and community businesses in order to meet the needs of our students. Each unit of study is enhanced by the meaningful connections that these amazing neighborhood sites provide our students, within and outside the classroom.
