Mission: Brooklyn RISE builds the knowledge, habits, and mindsets for academic success ensuring all kindergarten through fifth grade students are on the path to college.

Though educators and community members continue to work hard on behalf of students and families in Sunset Park, the elementary school options in Sunset Park continue to be overcrowded and under-performing. Brooklyn RISE seeks to change this reality by providing a truly excellent, college preparatory education for the students and families of Sunset Park.

Proposed Lead Founder, Cary Finnegan, is a committed educator who is currently a fellow with the national non-profit organization, Building Excellent Schools. This fellowship has allowed her to study the best practices of some of the highest-performing elementary schools across the country. Brooklyn RISE understands where the bar is set nationally, and will bring that same level of high expectations and achievement to the Sunset Park community.
