Next Generation


“The land between.”


From Metropolitan Lighthouse to Nuasin Next Generation

The name Nuasin Next Generation Charter School was chosen by our community in 2020. "The Wappinger Confederacy, the tribe located here before European colonization, called the hill that the school is on "Nuasin," or "the land between," for its location between the Harlem River and an estuary along modem-day Jerome Ave. "Next Generation" highIights the advanced methods of learning and engagement and our school's primary focus on developing the future generation of scholars to leaders. The next generation will need skills that go above and beyond what is typically taught in school. This part of our name shares our focus on developing both hard and soft skills for scholars to read to lead. Education is always about preparing the next generation for greatness.

  • Metropolitan Lighthouse Charter School opens in the Southeast section of the Bronx, New York in a co-located space.

  • We establish ourselves in the Highbridge section of the Bronx, New York in our very own newly constructed building.

  • After establishing our brand and strong relationship with the community, our board and leadership team apply to the state to become an independently-managed charter school.

    Our school becomes Nuasin Next Generation Charter School.
