Our World Neighborhood Charter School 2, in Howard Beach is located right at the border of Brooklyn & Queens. It takes pride in bridging two communities. We are proud to serve a rich, culturally, and ethnically, diverse community. We truly embrace the concept of a liberal arts education. In addition to a solid academic foundation of Math, ELA, Science, and Social Studies which students study from K through 5th Grade, our students begin Kindergarten and continue through 5th grade with Art, Health, Music, Physical Education and Spanish.

Our World Neighborhood Charter School 2 is a candidate school* for the PYP. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students. * Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes visit http://www.ibo.org.

The most fascinating thing about OWN 2 is the joy that is shared between students on a daily basis. Students are always eager and willing to learn when they come to school each day.
