Studying on campus allows graduate students to engage in field experiences and to learn about the real day-to-day challenges of teaching in an urban school. Like medical students in a teaching hospital, our graduate students learn deeply through immersion in effective, progressive classrooms within the K-12 schools on our campus. Indeed our Progressive Education Institute campus is a vibrant learning community of graduate students, new teachers, experienced master teachers, graduate school faculty, and K-12 students.
Located on 124th Street in the heart of Harlem, our main hall is the PEI Goldman-Sonnenfeldt Building adjacent to several HVA schools, down the street from Marcus Garvey Park and the Harlem Public Library, and a few blocks from the Apollo Theater. The Goldman-Sonnenfeldt Building is scheduled for completion in 2017.
