Reopening Plan 2021-2022

To assure equity in all students Rosalyn Yalow Charter School strongly encourages all students to return to in-person instruction. The New York State Department of Health and the Governor’s Office prioritize in-person instruction in early grades, special education students, and English language learners. All these account for 100% of Rosalyn Yalow’s student body.

4-Year Charter Renewal

In the past three years only four NYS charters have been awarded a four-year renewal, which is a strong vote of confidence in Yalow’s model and the progress we’ve made, growing from 210 to 510 students.

What Makes Us Special

Virtual Tour of the Yalow Charter School

Japanese Lesson Study Demonstration Video

Rosalyn Yalow teachers hone their math teaching skills with Japanese Lesson Study—research lessons in which teachers collaborate with and critique one another to improve their teaching. The following video is from a recent demonstration. At Yalow, students are taught Singapore math, which balances computational fluency with conceptual understanding—numeracy—so students can master numeric concepts. Singapore math focuses on visualizing numeric concepts, and pictorial models are used for understanding strategies to solve word problems.
