Launched in February 2021, Uncommon Sense is an instructional best-practices blog with insights and resources that have been developed and fine-tuned in Uncommon’s 53 schools. For two decades, Uncommon has observed its strongest teachers and codified their practices for the entire network. The result? Consistently high achievement results that last beyond college.
Since opening our doors to 75 middle schoolers in Newark, NJ, nearly every Uncommon alumni has received a college acceptance and are on pace to graduate from four-year colleges at higher rates than students from wealthier households.
