Preparing teachers and educators to be leaders in progressive education.
Founded more than a century ago, Bank Street has a long history as a leader in progressive education and a deep commitment to principles of social justice. We see in education the opportunity to build a better society.
Across our leadership, teacher, and educator preparation programs, Bank Street graduate students learn through active engagement with materials, ideas, people, and environments, and benefit from the deep expertise of our faculty. We develop thoughtful educators who make learning vital and creative and who seek to understand and develop the capacities of the children, adults, and communities they work with.
