Job Description

This school year marks the 18th anniversary of Success Academies and the launch of our mission to reimagine public education as an excellent, efficient and equitable pillar of American society. During this time, Success Academies has grown faster than any charter network in the nation, building a vibrant network of 53 elementary, middle and high schools. Our 20,000 children - mostly low income and minority - are out-performing students at top city and suburban schools across New York State. Looking forward, our goals are even more ambitious: to grow to 100 schools and to educate 50,000 children across New York City in a uniquely holistic K-12 system, bringing transformational change here and across the country through extraordinary school quality.

  • Deliver analytics and insights that are clear and digestible to non-technical stakeholders.
  • Conduct rigorous quality assurance to ensure accuracy and integrity of data.
  • Produce Schooling department dashboards and data visualizations.
  • Conduct ad-hoc analyses to gain understanding of relationships between school and scholar level variables to develop insights on which to build recommendations.
