Make the new DOE facility at Atlantic Yards a dedicated middle school.
The Community Education Council of District 13, Brooklyn Community Board 8, local PTOs and elected officials all agree that a dedicated middle school accessible to all students in our District will not only provide needed additional middle school seats, but it will increase the diversity and stability of our elementary schools, too.
District 13 serves socially, economically, and culturally diverse community, a community that would be best served by a new intermediate school that includes:
High-quality instruction in performing, visual, and language arts, and reaching beyond the classroom to leverage the school’s proximity to Brooklyn’s cultural district;
A comprehensive STEM curriculum, including developing partnerships with Brooklyn’s expanding high-tech sectors to provide software engineering and robotics;
Dual language studies to provide continuity to students in District 13’s six elementary school dual language programs;
Support to English-language learners and bilingual and bicultural families in the District; and
Equal access to all rising District 13 middle-school students.
The M.S. OneBrooklyn organizers want the Mayor and the Chancellor to commit to making the new facility at Atlantic Yards a dedicated middle middle school now, so that it can be designed and built to provide an optimal learning environment for the District's middle school students.
