About the School Founders

  • Rachel Winell and Jessica Costantine

The Embankment School was founded by Jessica Costantine and Rachel Winell, two career educators with advanced degrees in education and a combined 28 years of teaching experience. Having taught both domestically and internationally across a rich array of school systems and settings, Jessica and Rachel have designed a quality curriculum based on their experience teaching at prestigious private schools, progressive Friends schools, Montessori schools as well as high-performing NYC public schools.

As Jersey City-based teachers (and mothers of school-aged children), Jessica and Rachel are committed to making The Embankment School a new and vibrant local alternative for educating children and preparing them for success. They are "Building a Foundation for Learning."
