Welcome to Eugenio Maria de Hostos Charter School!

The learning community of EMHCS welcomes you and your family to our school.  EMHCS has an 18 year track record of excellence and achievement. Our school is fortunate to have staff, students, and parents working together to create partnerships for learning.  The committed and professional educators and staff at our school continually look for ways to improve our school and our classroom instruction. Our common focus is our students and their personal and academic growth. Our philosophy is that if a child cannot learn the way we teach then we will learn to teach the way the child can learn.

Consequently, we provide daily additional instructional time through a 30-minute tutoring session, a longer school year and day, and a 20-day Summer Institute to provide instructional support for students who need the additional time to be successful in ELA and Math.

Helping the whole child is just as important as the academic requirements. Therefore, our students participate in art, dance, music, physical education, character development and health instruction.

We look forward to a wonderful and successful 2017-2018 school year.  Please feel free to look through our website for additional information or call us.
