Limited enrollment space remains at New Roots Charter School

Less than 10 seats remain in the freshman class at New Roots Charter School for the 2016-2017 school year, according to Rebecca Cutter, Community Learning and Outreach Coordinator.
“Now in our eighth year, we are seeing strong demand for our truly unique small downtown public high school,” said Cutter. “The word is spreading that New Roots is a tuition-free, public school open to students who live in any school district in our region.”
New Roots offers innovative, interdisciplinary learning experiences featuring real world projects and community engagement in a diverse and inclusive social environment. Close working relationships between teachers and students support personalized learning and strong home-school communication. Students and families describe the experience as “transformative,” and college admissions officers report that a New Roots experience helps students stand out as candidates.
Located in the heart of downtown Ithaca in the Clinton House, New Roots is designed for just 160 students in grades 9-12. Seats are limited to 40 per grade. Families are encouraged to enroll now for 2016. For more information visit or call 882-9220 ext. 207.
