Beginning with Children to Open New High School in Brooklyn

Builds on Successful Programs at Two K-8 Charter Schools

Adds to Vision Launched by Joe and Carol Reich Decades Ago

BROOKLYN – A new public high school is coming to Brooklyn this summer, offering traditionally underserved students a robust year-round academic program and comprehensive college and career advisory services that will help graduates enter and navigate college and post-collegiate professional life.

The high school will open with 90 students in 9th grade for students at Beginning with Children Charter School 2 (BwCCS2), Community Partnership Charter School (CPCS), and students in the surrounding Brooklyn community. It will be located in private space at 11 Bartlett Street, in Williamsburg’s District 14.

The school was approved Wednesday by the State University of New York Trustees Charter School Committee and will eventually grow to 342 students in grades 9-12 in four years.
