Brooklyn Community High School for Excellence and Equity

Overview written by the school: Our community is committed to educational equity and excellence. We provide students of all backgrounds and experiences the chance to experience rigorous, challenging curricula, along with community support to excel in their lives beyond high school. Our Science, Technology, Engineering Arts and Mathematics program utilizes a S.T.E.A.M. approach to facilitate learning experiences driven by problem solving, discovery, and exploratory learning. S.T.E.A.M. is present in all subjects and allows students to connect what they learn with what they see around them, and who they are. S.T.E.A.M. learning promotes student readiness for college, prepares them for a 21st century workforce, and provides opportunities for critical and design thinking.
