Why Choose
Lavelle Prep

Students learn from each other as much as they learn from their teachers. Our classes are welcoming of all students, including those with IEPs. Our small class sizes and highly trained staff ensure that all students can learn and grow in the same environment. By employing dually certified teachers in both their areas of concentration and in special education, as well as dually certified teaching assistants, dynamic and differentiated instruction is crafted and delivered to ensure effective and meaningful learning on a daily basis.

Fully Inclusive Learning

We embrace diversity through integrating students with differing learning needs in our classrooms. Lavelle Preparatory Charter School classes are comprised of 60% general education students and 40% special education students, each working alongside teachers at their own pace.

Individualized Attention

We value the power of small class sizes in increasing student engagement, improving academic performance, and strengthening relationships between students and teachers.

Next Level Readiness

Students have the opportunity to earn college credits through our partnerships with the College of Staten Island and Monroe College. Lavelle makes a commitment to its students, beginning as early as kindergarten with them all the way through college graduation.

Student Wellness

We recognize the important role mental, emotional, and social wellness plays in fulfilling personal potential, even beyond the classroom. Our robust Wellness program guides students in managing stress, overcoming challenges and practicing conflict-resolution in their everyday lives.
