Welcome to Sunset Yards Middle School
Located in Sunset Park (District 15), Sunset Yards Middle School will serve 30 5th graders and 110 6th graders starting this fall and grow by a grade each year until students reach 8th grade.
Sunset Yards Middle School will draw upon the success of other schools in the Prospect Schools network to become a special academic environment where students can bring their true selves to school every day and feel comfortable trying new things, grappling with difficult material, making mistakes, and developing the skills and confidence to tackle whatever challenges come their way. We will empower students to use their voices to advocate for themselves and positively impact the world around them.
We’re immensely proud of our high-performing middle schools—places where students can explore new ideas in a nurturing and close-knit learning environment with the support of their classmates, teachers, and families. In 2022, 75% of Middle School students at Prospect Schools are proficient in English Language Arts, reflecting a 10% increase since 2019 based on the New York State exam. At Prospect Schools middle school, your child can become a leader and develop the academic, social, and emotional skills they’ll need to find success and happiness in high school, college, and beyond.
Students who attend our Sunset Yards Middle School will develop the academic, social, and emotional skills they’ll need to thrive find success and happiness in our high school, college, and beyond.
We look forward to partnering with you as we help your middle school student realize the unique richness of what Prospect Schools has to offer.
