Bushwick Leaders’ High School first opened its doors in the fall of 2003. It was the result of collaboration between the New York City Department of Education, East Brooklyn Congregations (a community-based organization that specializes in housing, public works, and educational projects) and Catherine Reilly, our principal. We began with just over a hundred students and a bare, cinderblock building. Since then, we have grown into a successful high school in a historic Brooklyn monument that endeavors to serve the students in the Bushwick community.
History of BLHS
Bushwick Leaders' High School for Academic Excellence will prepare ninth through twelfth grade students from the Bushwick Community, regardless of prior academic performance, to become active leaders with an emphasis on academics, college preparation and technology. In collaboration with East Brooklyn Congregations, parents, teachers, and the community, students will develop skills to become critical thinkers and problem solvers who will reach their highest potential enabling them to compete in the global economy. The school will take advantage of its small size to develop strong interpersonal relationships based on trust and shared high expectations for students.
