Community School District 6
Led by Superintendent Manuel Ramirez, Community School District 6 (CSD 6) is a New York City Public Schools district serving Hamilton Heights, Washington Heights, and Inwood. Our CSD 6 consists of 39 schools.
District 6 is where every child, in every school, is afforded an exemplary 21st-century learning environment through a multidimensional approach that engages families and community. Every student has equitable access to high-quality, rigorous instruction that fosters the authentic knowledge, critical and creative thinking skills, and dispositions needed to be a confident and independent thinker, self-directed learner, active contributor, and concerned citizen.
We are committed to increasing the capacity of school leaders, to build upon teacher practice and to work collaboratively with parents, families and the school community, in order to nurture confident and independent thinkers. Students will increasingly engage in project-based experiences aligned to authentic, real-life problems and/or situations.
2022-2023 School Year Priorities:
District 6 will continue to strengthen and sustain effective planning and implementation of instruction through continued professional development, learning walks, and school visits to deepen authentic student engagement across our schools.
Increase opportunities for students to engage in extended writing activities across all content areas i.e., non-fiction writing in Science, Social Studies, Math.
Enhance the integration of scientific thinking and STEM methodologies into daily instruction across all subject areas through experiential learning opportunities connected to authentic life and global issues.
Strengthen student engagement opportunities that include:
Collaborative learning tasks, literacy/math centers, etc.
Project based activities i.e., STEAM, Civic Engagement, Community issues and opportunities.
