We need your support. If you believe that it is important to have a district school in Downtown Brooklyn to serve the current and future residents of this quickly growing neighborhood, please sign our petition. You don’t need to be parent to support this, just agree that the DOE and Department of City Planning made a big mistake and need to start planning immediately. Building a neighborhood school is a critical part of building any new community.

If you are a resident of the surrounding neighborhoods (Fort Greene, Brooklyn Heights, Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, DUMBO), you are also being adversely affected by overcrowding in your schools as a result of the population boom Downtown, show your support for more choices for our children.

Please sign your name to the petition and spread the word.

    There are so many new families in the neighbourhood and school options are very limited. Private schools are too expensive and there is no real public option in the vicinity. Downtown Brooklyn desperately needs one or more new schools to fill this definitely growing need.

    As a teacher myself, I am very disturbed by the lack of high-quality public schools in downtown Brooklyn. The new apartment buildings being constucted in Downtown Brooklyn are filled with young families who are or will be looking for schools for their children. Let’s be proactive and start planning now!

    I don’t have children but I definitely support this initiative. The infrastructure of downtown brooklyn needs to be updated to support all of the people moving in.

    That will help the neighborhood continue to grow and thrive.
