What to Expect at a Cooperative School

The school was founded on a cooperative model by members of the Stevens Institute of Technology community. Today, the program cultivates a deeply rewarding partnership among all members of the school community including students, teachers, administrators, and parents.

At Stevens, experience has shown that students thrive when their families are engaged with their school so every family chooses a Cooperative job — a way to engage with the school on their own terms, in ways large or small. Parents also vote on the school’s bylaws and are invited to participate in their child’s classroom. The school hosts Helping Parent/Guardians Days which are an opportunity for families to put names to faces, deeply understand the classroom and student experience, and make the stories they hear at the dinner table real.

The Senior Administration is made up of 12 leaders, including Sergio Alati, Ed.D., who recently celebrated his first decade as Head of School. The administrative team oversees academic management, curriculum development, equity and student services, auxiliary programs, advancement and more. The curriculum is built on a strong foundation which welcomes passion in education, amplifies students’ voices, and empowers them to exceed their own expectations.

The Four Pillars in Action

Guided by the four pillars of Community, Continuous Improvement, Diversity + Equity, and Progressive Teaching + Learning, students at Stevens Cooperative School are instilled with a lifelong love of learning and are provided the foundation they need to become ethical, exploratory, and broad-minded citizens.

Early Childhood students in PreK 3 through Kindergarten receive the tools and opportunities needed to discover the world for themselves. In block-building, they explore concepts in math, science, language arts, social studies and art. Kindergarteners create a museum and exhibits for the 100th day of school, visited by families and older students. The youngest learners build confidence around their older peers as part of the Reading Buddies program.

First through 4th grade students in the Lower School tackle new challenges, explore multiple disciplines and develop their sense of identity. Students learn about cities and transportation by engaging with the local community, which culminates in the 2nd grade project, a reconstruction of the Brooklyn Bridge.Third and 4th graders learn about the indigenous inhabitants of Hoboken + Jersey City and study immigration. They also star in the annual musical, which is a school-wide collaboration directed and stage-managed by the middle schoolers.

Middle schoolers choose elective classes, select which instruments to learn, and join athletic teams to shape their school experience. They also serve as mentors for the youngest students. Graduates develop a high degree of social and emotional intelligence. They’re confident in their knowledge and eager to discover new ideas, challenge conventional truths, and experience new frontiers.

Instructors at Stevens Cooperative School teach essential skills like critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, analysis, and hypothesizing. The students apply what they learn in one subject to others; revise their thinking based on experience and research; and take an unprecedented degree of responsibility for the shape of their education.

Graduates leave Stevens Cooperative School with confidence in their ability to navigate their future and the world around them as they continue on to higher education.
