What is EL Education?

Like all NYC Outward Bound schools, we implement the nationally recognized EL Education school model, which is rooted in Outward Bound. This model features rigorous learning experiences, both in and out of the classroom, and is built upon a culture of high achievement and mutual support. MS 839 uses hands-on learning that has real-world application to ignite a joy for learning and discovery in our students. At our school, leadership, active citizenship, and character development go hand-in-hand with academic rigor and challenge. Learn more about EL Education at eleducation.org.
