School Notes

  • The Brooklyn Charter School`s educational program is designed to meet each learner at their point of entry. Our program is research-based, inclusive of all learning styles and abilities, and is focused on the development, growth and success of the individual learner. All learners are expected to meet and exceed the grade level benchmarks of the Common Core Learning Standards. To do this BCS implements a rigorous curriculum, uses all assessment data to foster effective teaching and learning, incorporates the model of two teachers in the classroom, K-5, and maintains small sized classrooms that foster greater individual attention. The program has been created to raise achievement levels by preparing students with both basic and enriched skills in Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. In addition, students are expected to experience and develop a cultural vocabulary in Music and Dance. Students are also taught citizenry and resilience through Harambee (community gathering) and school-wide assemblies. Here, students and faculty work together to create a positive, respectful and nurturing community.
