  • Overview

    We are a transfer high school on the Upper west Side in NYC. We focus on building relationships in order to support our students.

    Edward A. Reynolds West Side High School seeks to develop economically self-sufficient, socially conscious, critically thinking citizens.

    Our school’s mission is to provide an educational environment that assists students who have been unsuccessful in traditional high school settings. We serve students who have been pushed out of, or become disenchanted with, their previous schools. Our school features the LYFE Center (a day care program), an on-site clinic with services provided by the Ryan Health Center, a social work support staff, and partnerships with numerous non-profit organizations to enhance the health and wellbeing of our students. In addition we also offer gardening, healthy eating and cooking classes, a rugby sports program, PSAL sports, dance and music classes, classes in global political awareness, and a mock trial team. It is our goal at Edward A. Reynolds West Side High School to support and teach students so that they may graduate and go on to fulfill their dreams, and live a healthy, productive, and prosperous life. One way we do this work is by teaching and living out our Community Values. When students make mistakes, or violate our Community Values, we work to support the students so they can resolve the issue peacefully and repair any harm that has been caused. The foundation for doing this work in our community lies in our relationships with one another, our communication with one another, and in our ability to learn and grow. Instead of suspending kids and kicking them out of classes, we work to repair the harm, create peace, and teach the lesson so that everyone can stay in school, and remain focused on the task of graduating. Restorative Practices include but are not limited to; parent conferences, meetings with a social worker, mediations, restorative conferences, circles, and community service.

    Willing to work collaboratively with colleagues.

    Ability to provide the support each student needs.

    We are a NYC Department of Education public school. Please see the DOE's website for information about teaching.
