|DREAM Charter School will serve children and families from East Harlem, the community where its institutional partner Harlem RBI, a comprehensive year-round community based organization that provides educational and enrichment programs, has worked for many years. The school is founded on the belief that student success is based on the instructional effectiveness of the classroom teachers. To meet the various needs of its students, DREAM partners each general education teacher with a teacher certified in either Special Education or English as a Second Language. This provides two co-teaching teams on each grade level, with a maximum of 25 students per class. At DREAM, health and wellness education is a fundamental component of the overall curriculum, and the overarching importance of maintaining a healthy mind and body is woven deeply into the school's culture and educational philosophy.
