Keeping Brooklyn Collegiate Preparatory High School open.

This petition had 1,227 supporters

  On Monday December 18th 2017 the teachers, parents and staff of 19 schools were informed of a proposal to close by the end of the school year.  School communities like Brooklyn Collegiate have found this decision to be unfair.  As teachers, staff and students of Brooklyn Collegiate we have decided to stand firm and fight to keep our school open.

   Brooklyn Collegiate is a beacon of hope in the community, which strives to help students who have challenges succeed. It is the only community school serving students in the Brownsville neighborhood.  Brooklyn Collegiate has been performing better than comparable schools with comparable challenges across the city, and has been continuously improving over the last 3 years building a culture of academic rigor and preparing children for college success.  

  Student who face challenges are earning the credits needed to become a high school graduate. We are BC strong, and we ask that you all stand firm with us as a community and keep Brooklyn Collegiate open.
