Coney Island Prep teachers have the opportunity to work with students at all achievement levels, with a strong network of support to guide their instructional practice. We own our work and are driven by personal responsibility to support the achievement of every scholar.
There is no more urgent task than to deliver a world-class education to all students, especially those from low-income communities. We hire professionals who share our dedication to urban education. This is challenging work, but Coney Island Prep is a school where you can have immediate and long-term impact.
In my first year as an apprentice teacher, I was learning so much from my colleagues during the day and from grad school at night. I couldn’t ask for better training.

We reinforce the growth of our staff with year-round coaching and professional development. Our team-based school culture means you will always have someone there to steer you through a challenging day, help you with a lesson plan, or listen to your innovative ideas.
