Student Life at Downtown Brooklyn Elementary School

What is it like to be a BPCS student?

You’ll find more than a 13-year, grades K-12 world-class education at Brooklyn Prospect. The same energy and excitement we have for student learning also drives the rich student culture on campus.

Elementary school students enjoy a nurturing and supportive learning community in which parents and families are welcomed in the classroom. Interactive and hands-on activities play an especially important role during this exciting time of growth and development as students learn to become critical thinkers and strong readers. 

As they mature, Brooklyn Prospect students are also expected to lead themselves in developing their full potential in arts, sports, and other domains. Each campus provides ample opportunity for students to pursue interests beyond traditional academic subjects, both inside and outside of the classroom.  Our Downtown Brooklyn elementary students explore dance, art, community, and world language.  At the Windsor Terrace middle and high school campus, students can participate in or take leadership roles in over 30 extracurricular student organizations and athletic teams. 

Thanks to talented teachers and students, BPCS is home to a creative and vibrant arts environment. Whether searching for an opportunity for self-expression, exploring a potential future career, or simply gaining a new skill, Brooklyn Prospect students are encouraged to find their creative voice. The curriculum-based fine arts courses offered at the school include dance, music, drama, and visual arts.
