    Bank Street College of Education - Learn with greater depth. Teach with greater impact
    Since our beginnings in 1916, Bank Street has been at the forefront of understanding how children learn and grow. From schools and museums to early childhood centers and hospital settings, Bank Street has built its reputation on the simple fact that our graduates, educators, and leaders know how to do the work that is right for children. Today, Bank Street’s Graduate School of Education offers over 50 teacher and leader preparation programs. We continue to be an innovator in improving the quality of classroom practice and a national advocate for children, families, and the system and policy changes that bring effective and equitable teaching to all.

    We continue to find inspiration in the words of Lucy Sprague Mitchell's Credo.

    We see in education the opportunity to build a better society. 

    —Lucy Sprague Mitchell, Founder of Bank Street College
