Between EHTP’s after-school programs and charter schools, more than 15,000 East Harlem youth and their families have walked through its doors – and, by participating in EHTP’s year-long, free programs, they have improved their academic skills, developed confidence, and found community.

Their commitment is to educate future professionals who will make a significant impact on the academic achievement, as well as the intellectual, social and emotional development of their students.  The 2014 National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) review of teacher preparation programs, published by U.S. News & World Report, indicates that the Hunter College School of Education offers the greatest breadth of quality across programs in the mid-Atlantic United States and the highest overall ranking in New York State.
