Careers in NYC Schools

Internship Opportunities

The New York City Department of Education is the largest system of public schools in the United States, serving 1.1 million students in over 1,800 schools. New York City’s public schools are led by Chancellor Carmen Fariña, a veteran educator committed to partnership with all stakeholders of the school community, and to supporting teachers so they can provide a quality education to all students.
