How Does XQ+NYC Rethink High School?

In 2019, the New York City Department of Education launched Imagine NYC Schools, an ambitious initiative to design innovative, high-quality schools with equity and excellence at their core. Through XQ+NYC, the high school component of the initiative, students, teachers, families, and community members are coming together to imagine high schools that are engaging, inclusive, and student-centered—schools that prepare all students for college, meaningful careers, and all the future has to offer.
