LEEP Dual Language Academy Charter School opened its doors this August and serves the diverse community of Sunset Park, Brooklyn. LEEP Academy is leading the way in creating an innovative dual language model that will help instill a love of language and a sense of pride that should come with being bilingual/multilingual. Our students come from different backgrounds and walks of life, but all of our students will leave our school with a strong sense of self, high academic achievement, and fluency in both English & Spanish! We are seeking a talented and passionate educator to join our founding team.
