Our Mission

The Salk School is one of a handful of collaborative schools started in 1995. The school opened a few months after the death of Jonas Salk, M.D., developer of the first polio vaccine. A graduate of the NYU School of Medicine, Dr. Salk endorsed the school by granting NYU and District 2 the use of his name.
