Welcome to Windsor Terrace Middle School
At Windsor Terrace Middle School, you will find a community that values diverse perspectives and experiences and works hard to create a welcoming, inclusive, and antiracist environment for all.
Middle school is a time of great discovery and transition. Students enter sixth grade at the apex of their childhood years and move on from eighth grade deep into adolescence. We are a supportive and trusting learning environment from which our students matriculate into high school, having made significant academic and social-emotional growth.
Because we understand that our students’ adult lives are directly influenced by their experiences during these teenage years, the Brooklyn Prospect Middle School program is designed to facilitate opportunities that ensure our students embody each of our core values: care, persistence, passion, and curiosity. Our students care deeply about the safety and well-being of themselves and each community member. Our students approach solving problems with determination, creativity, and tenacity by exemplifying persistence. Our students enthusiastically tackle challenges and view them as continuous improvement opportunities. Our students lean into curiosity, ask questions when faced with difficult situations, and seek to understand others.
Because of the adults in our community, our middle school students leave our building embodying our core values and as lifelong learners. They are eager to have a positive impact on society. From day one, our advisory curriculum and trauma-sensitive school routines greatly emphasize developing well-rounded students. Our small school environment and student-centered teaching approach help our faculty carefully adapt to middle school students’ broad spectrum of academic, social, emotional, and physical needs.
In closing, I leave you with this quote from Angela Davis, an activist, and revolutionary who inspires me to be a lifelong learner, embody our core values, and have a positive impact on society, even in the most challenging times: “You have to act as if it were possible to transform the world radically. And you have to do it all the time.”
I look forward to partnering with you as we help your middle school student realize the unique richness of what Brooklyn Prospect offers.
