About us

Brooklyn Generation is a Community School!  Brooklyn Generation won a competitive grant to secure resources as a community school.  As a community school, we are able to provide more programs, services and opportunities to our students, and their families. For more about our community schools programming, contact Kelly Dunham, Community School Director, at 718 968 4200.   

Brooklyn Generation is a School of Opportunity!  Brooklyn Generation was recognized by the national organization as a school creating opportunities for teachers, students and families.  We work with students will take advantage of the opportunities we offer, and will learn to advocate for themselves, to create opportunities throughout their lives.    

History  Located in the former South Shore High School campus, Brooklyn Generation School opened in September 2007 with its first 9th grade class.  We
graduated our first 12th grade class in June 2011 and have maintained a strong graduation rate.  The school serves Canarsie, East Flatbush and the remaining neighborhoods. 

Mission and Vision Brooklyn Generation School is dedicated to having our students graduate with the skills, knowledge and experience required to be successful in college and beyond.  We are proud of the many students who graduated on time and are now in college.  We know they serve as role models for the students currently at Brooklyn Generation. 

Brooklyn Generation School opened in 2007, as part of the turn-around of the South Shore Campus, replacing a high school the Chancellor said was “unsalvageable”.  Historically, one only one-third of students who enrolled at the campus in ninth grade graduated on time. By 2011, we more than doubled the graduation rate.
