Our School

We are a public magnet school in Brooklyn serving grades Pre-K to 8. Through rigorous and engaging project-based learning, our students develop a deep academic, social, and physical wellness foundation to prepare them for high school and beyond. Our students become healthy citizens who contribute to our community.

We offer a dual-language Spanish program beginning in Kindergarten.

We now have 3K for all starting Fall 2020!

We are located in District 14. As a magnet school, we welcome families outside our Zone and District.
