Promise Heights Partnership


The Promise Heights Partnership comprises two schools: Historic Samuel Coleridge Taylor Elementary and Furman Templeton Preparatory Academy. Inspired by Harlem Children’s Zone, Promise Heights is a collective impact effort to create a “cradle to career” pipeline for children in the neighborhood. Promise Heights believes that a child’s emotional and spiritual needs must be met before they are ready to be taught. For this reason, yoga practice is incorporated into the school environment, students are taught early on how to identify and deal with emotions, and children and families are surrounded with a holistic set of support that enables them to succeed at home, in school, and in the community.
