Our World Neighborhood Charter School

Welcome

Thank you for your interest in Our World Neighborhood Charter Schools. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about OWNCS. You will discover information outlining the admissions process, educational philosophy, and community values. We encourage you to attend an open house to see our vision brought to life.

OWNCS is a non-sectarian, tuition-free, public charter school. OWNCS does not discriminate against any student in the admissions process or the provision of educational programs on any unlawful basis, including on the basis of  ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or ability.

Students are selected for admission randomly by lottery.

Priority for available seats is based on the following:

  • Current sibling at the OWNCS school to which you are applying
  • Parent/guardian employed by OWNCS  
  • Resident of School District 30 (if applying to OWN-Astoria)
  • Resident of School District 27 (if applying to OWN 2-Howard Beach) 

Complete applications must be submitted by the deadline. 

After all available seats have been filled in each grade, a waiting list is created for the remaining applicants. The waiting list expires on December 31st of the year applied for.
