Prospect Schools & International Charter School
Exciting News: International Charter School of New York (ICS) is joining the Prospect Schools family!
Prospect Schools currently serves over 1,600 students K-12 at five schools across Brooklyn. With two elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school in our network, the families of ICS will be able to take advantage of that expanded community. Once the merger is finalized, 5th grade students at ICS will have seats at our Clinton Hill Middle School. They can continue onto Brooklyn Prospect High School if they choose.
Prospect Schools is excited to engage all ICS employees with the our mission and vision. Educators will benefit from professional development and collaboration with a larger community of educators. Our combined team, along with the added network expertise and support, will be substantially stronger in resources and systems, which is an undeniable win for our students, teachers and families in both the short and long term.
