TECCS in Action

TECCS Math Team

The new TECCS Math Team competed in its first completion on March 14 (Pi Day!) at Princeton University. Our sixth graders held their own against middle school teams, mostly comprised of eighth graders, from throughout northern New Jersey at the NJASCS Math Contest. We are particularly proud that TECCS had one of the most most balanced ratios of boys to girls of all the teams at the competition.

A Peek At Our School




TECCS owes its educational philosophy to Socrates, Horace Mann, Clara Barton, Amos Gager Throop, and Felix Adler.  Schools founded by or named after some of these great thinkers have evolved into renowned institutions of learning.  Although the Ethical Community Charter Schools have been inspired by them, they are independent, publicly chartered schools and have no affiliation with any other institution.


Why TECCS? What is so important about our educational process?


TECCS is a school where teachers lead and collaborate with students in a culture of rigorous academics and mutual respect; where analytical thinking and creativity are prized over learning by repetition; where children become individuals of integrity, insight, autonomy - and socially productive citizens, workers, leaders.

TECCS is an ideal school for children of families that embrace the ideals of ethics, service, and social justice together with a demanding, well-rounded education of academic studies and the arts. The greater the participation of the parents, the greater the potential for the success of their children.

TECCS opened in the Mt. Carmel School, in September 2009, with three Kindergarten classes and three 1st-grade classes. Applications for admission for the 2012-13 school year are expected to be far greater than available places, therefore acceptance will be decided by lottery. Early applications are advised. Please go to Admissions for more details.
