Summer means a wardrobe change. Visit the link to our school page to see how you can donate your gently used kids and women's clothes.  Or look around on the website and maybe you'll find some treasures of your own!

Our School

TCCS was established in 2011 through a partnership of Teachers College (TC), Columbia University and the New York City Department of Education. It is a non-selective, choice public elementary school that gives priority to families residing in Community School Districts 5 and 6. The school adds a grade level each year, and at full capacity TCCS will serve students in grades Pre-K through 8.
