Steinhardt's Adopted School Makes the Grade
In 1999, a team of Steinhardt School faculty and administrators assisted New York City's Department of Education, in creating the University Neighborhood High School (UHNS). Located on Manhattan's Lower East Side, the school's mission is to provide the community first-class college preparation for its youth. Every year, 20-30 NYU students serve as tutors and mentors at the University Neighborhood High School, and many have gone on to teach there as well. UNHS offers a challenging academic college preparatory program and students can attend College Preview courses at NYU. More than 90% of its graduates go on to college.
