Essex Street Academy (M294) is a District 2, open admissions high school located in the Lower East Side. Please see About Us and this video to see what makes us unique! We are also an Inside Schools “Staff Pick” school.
This year, we are offering both virtual and in-person Open Houses for prospective students and their parents/guardians. Meet our administrators, teachers, and our admissions and college counselor, and learn about the academic programming and extracurricular activities our school has to offer.
