Avenues: The World School Celebrates First First Day

After 5 years of planning, Avenues: The World School is open for business. It is the largest independent school opening in the history of New York City.

CER President Jeanne Allen got a sneak peak of Avenues before it opened. The New York City school is the flagship in a planned global network of schools with a unique mission to promote and nurture global preparedness. The school pledges to “set an example as an effective, diverse, and accountable school,” and boasts an impressive faculty and administration — including founder and entrepreneur Chris Whittle.
