Success Academy Charter Schools - Founder & CEO
Success Academy Charter Schools
Eva Moskowitz, a long-time Harlem resident and mother of three, is founder and CEO of Success Academy Charter Schools, the highest-performing charter school network in New York City. In 2006, Ms. Moskowitz launched her first school in Harlem, and in ten years, her network has grown to 41 schools serving 14,000 children in the Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn. Success Academy schools serve a high-poverty population, yet they consistently outperform New York’s most affluent school districts. On the most recent state exams, Success schools ranked in the top 0.3% of all New York schools in math and the top 1.5% in reading. On the math exam, the five highest scoring schools were all Success Academies. Since 2012, the U.S. Department of Education has named four Success Academies as National Blue Ribbon Schools.
