The Brooklyn School for Collaborative Studies
BCS is our sister secondary school, created by parents and teachers 12 years ago to offer a BNS style education to older children. Founding Principal Alyce Barr has seen five classes of seniors graduate and go off to college.
From the BCS website:
At BCS, we design inquiry-based curriculum, resulting in students using real-world tools for discovery, analysis, and expression of their learning.
In a small, safe, community where every student is known, The Brooklyn School for Collaborative Studies (BCS) prepares young people in grades 6 through 12 for success in college and post-secondary careers. BCS is a member of the national network of Expeditionary Learning Schools which promotes rigorous and engaging curriculum; active, inquiry-based pedagogy; and a school culture that demands and teaches compassion and good citizenship.
