Who We Are

It is a non-selective, choice PreK-8 public elementary and middle school that gives priority to families residing in Community School Districts 5 and 6.

Our Mission

The TCCS mission is to establish a dynamic learning environment that nourishes children’s academic, social, emotional, and physical well-being. The Teachers College Community School strives to provide a child-centered environment that will inspire and challenge all of our students to become independent thinkers, problem solvers and life-long learners, and to work as a collaborative unit of parents, faculty and staff to ensure that our students perform their optimal best.
