We are a grassroots association of more than 300 families who live in and around Downtown Brooklyn who are concerned about the most important issue impacting our children: schools.  There is currently no plan to build a new neighborhood elementary school in Downtown Brooklyn (the fastest growing neighborhood in the city) to accommodate the hundreds (and eventually thousands) of children moving to the neighborhood. We are advocating for new, diverse, and high-quality public school (K-8) in Downtown Brooklyn to alleviate overcrowding caused by the city’s failure of planning and would like your help.

This is why we need need a new school:

We formed this group to meet with local officials and pressure them into action. If you are interested in attending a meeting to learn the latest and help out, or even if you just want to be kept up to date with what is going on with the schools in our area, please sign up to our newsletter.

We also are interested in informing parents about all their education options so that they can find the right school for their children. This website and our Facebook page are forums where parents can share news and information about schools in the area. We invite representatives of public, private, and charter schools that serve the neighborhood to come meet with our group.

Please join our bid to make sure that Downtown Brooklyn becomes a great place to live and raise children in addition to being the exciting hub of retail, higher-education, entertainment, and  high-tech business that it is fast becoming.

– Chris and Erin,
residents of Downtown Brooklyn and parents of a kindergartener.
