Graduate Student Outcomes

Bank Street contracted with the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education (SCOPE) to provide external assessment information about the preparation of our candidates to become competent professionals. The survey study queried alumni for the past 10 years, employers and comparison teachers within New York State. A selection of key findings are highlighted in the slideshow below.

Student Right-to-Know (SRK) Graduation Rates

The Student Right to Know Act requires an institution that participates in any student financial assistance program under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (as amended) to disclose information about graduation rates to current and prospective students.

The Bank Street Graduate School of Education five-year graduation rate is 90% across all programs offered. When looking at our teacher preparation programs specifically, the five-year graduation rate is similarly high at 89%. These figures encompass all graduate students completing their program, including those enrolled in dual certification programs.
