Bushwick Leaders' High School for Academic Excellence
Vision: 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.
Mission: 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.
Instructional Focus: At Bushwick Leaders' High School for Academic Excellence we believe student learn best when their teachers challenge them with varied higher order questions that challenge them to think and reason logically. Teachers present students with unfamiliar problems, uncertainties, questions or dilemmas, resulting in continued growth within these skills.
