Newark, New Jersey

Turnaround for Children expanded its program to Newark, New Jersey in 2013, thanks in part to support from Newark Public Schools and the Foundation for Newark’s Future. During the 2016-17 school year, we are partnering with one school in New Jersey’s largest city, serving 600 students and more than 50 teachers and staff.

  • At Chancellor Avenue School, 80% of staff rated their professional relationships positively, up from 63% the previous year
