Achievement First is Hiring!

Achievement First is a growing network of high-performing, K-12 urban public charter schools in Connecticut and Brooklyn focused on providing all of our scholars with the academic and character skills they need to graduate from top colleges. In fact, 100% of the class of 2010 and 2011 was accepted to a four-year college!
