To ensure that all of our students acquire the essential knowledge and skills that they need to become independent thinkers and to become active participants and contributors in their role as students and as members of society.

Our educational premise is that all children must receive grade level instruction that is challenging, yet engaging, rigorous yet motivational. Whether it is by providing students with scaffolds and supports or by providing students with enrichment opportunities, our teachers work hard to create a variety of instructional activities for students to achieve their learning goals.


Small School Community. Big Heart.

We are a small gem of a school located in East New York. Our faculty is caring, dedicated and committed to our students. 96 percent of our teachers look forward to coming to work each day! 98 percent of our parents feel warmly received when they contact or visit.



Our Advisory Program is unique in that students are assigned an advisor who meets with them weekly. That means that at all times our students have one person they can see to help them with issues that surface during high school.



We offer Biology Advanced Placement, AP Language & Composition, AP Environmental Science, AP Statistics & AP Government. These courses are available to students who choose to follow an intensive academic schedule in lieu of performing art classes. College classes are also available through our partnership with Medgar Evers College and College Now.
