Topic: Brooklyn Charter School Board of Trustees Monthly Meeting Time: 10.26.23 at 6PM Location: 545 Willoughby Avenue, Brooklyn…
Beginning this September, the Brooklyn Charter School will adopt a new extended day schedule. We will be open from 7 A.M. to 7 P.M. There will be no charge for this extended day. You will be able to drop off your child anytime between 7 A.M. and 8:30 A.M. and pick them up between 4 P.M. and 7 P.M. The required instructional day begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 4:00 p.m. Supplemental instructional and enrichment activities will occur during the flexible drop off and pick up hours. Since we are just two blocks from the G Train and the B43 and B54 buses, you will be able to drop off your child on your way to work and pick them up on your way home.
The Brooklyn Charter School is committed to providing a nurturing and supportive community where all students feel secure, recognize their own potential, respect others regardless of race, religion or culture, and are instilled with the desire to learn and achieve. It is our aim to provide a rigorous academic program supported by the Arts & Technology that cultivates the whole child. Through achievement and creativity, and in partnership with our families, students will develop the necessary confidence, intellectual capacity and leadership skills to prepare them for an evolving global society.
At The Brooklyn Charter School, we focus on educating the whole child with a proven approach that combines a model core academic curriculum with strong programs in the visual arts, music and dance.
