The Urban Assembly

For those of you who are wondering, like I was, what "The Urban Assembly" part of  The Urban Assembly School of Green Careers (and other schools) means. 

For underserved middle and high school children in New York City, The Urban Assembly operates an efficient, cohesive and scalable network of 20 public schools. The UA develops and applies best practices in urban education to provide students with the academic and life skills necessary not just for college readiness, but also for college completion. The UA's theme-based curriculum, enriched by an extensive mentoring program and professional partnerships, inspires students to enjoy learning, while teaching them to be intellectually curious, self-sufficient and focused on real-world goals.
