The Showcase Schools program is designed to recognize, celebrate, and share promising practices across New York City Department of Education schools. Showcase Schools promote collaboration by hosting three visits throughout the school year, in which any interested NYC DOE educator may attend.
The Showcase Schools program was launched by Chancellor Carmen Fariña in 2014, who believes that “collaboration, not competition” is the key to school improvement. With support from the Showcase team, Showcase Schools each host three visits where visitors will learn about specific practices, the conditions that contribute to their growth and sustainability, and the story of how they came to be. There are currently 46 schools participating in Showcase for the 2017-2018 school year.

Showcase School visits are open to all NYC DOE educators. View the 2017-2018 Showcase visits flyer to see the dates and register for visits (DOE login required).
Showcase Schools develop comprehensive resources that help others understand and adapt the promising practices seen at their schools. Housed on WeTeachNYC, this collection includes templates guides, and other annotated documents that you can download, share, and use immediately. Check out our full collection today!
