School Partnerships


The Office of School Partnerships within the School of Education oversees the school placement and supervision of students completing their fieldwork and student teaching/practicum requirements in New York public schools. The supervised clinical experiences for our educational programs are based on a two-year cohort model (Center for Professional Development Model) where Pace University School of Education students generally spend two years at the same partner school. This model is specifically designed to provide an in-depth experience for our students in all aspects of teaching, and in honing and developing their professional dispositions within a partnership school. State guidelines require that our students’ fieldwork/student teaching/practicum experiences provide opportunities for them to work with diverse student populations, including diverse in culture, socio-economic status, and academic proficiency. To that end, we vet our partner schools very carefully and partner predominantly with NYC, Westchester, and Rockland County public schools to ensure compliance.

The faculty, administration, and staff of the Pace University School of Education are here to support you through all aspects of your clinical experiences. We have worked hard to prepare you to be a reflective professional who will promote justice, create caring classrooms and communities, and enable all of your students to learn. Your fieldwork and student teaching/practicum experiences are your opportunity to put what you have been learning in your university classes into practice. We all wish you great success!
