Our schools, Beginning with Children Charter School 2, Community Partnership Charter School, and Community High School are located in Bedford Stuyvesant, Clinton Hill, Williamsburg, and downtown Brooklyn, where approximately 90% of our families qualify for free/reduced lunch. Our hard-working families, face high rates of low-wage employment, and find it increasingly difficult to break the cycle of poverty and continuing injustice which plague these neighborhoods. At BwC we know that academic success and college completion have proven to be the most effective way to promote social and economic mobility. We are committed to creating strong centers of learning that transform the lives of students and families and revitalize communities.

Beginning with Children continues to post-secondary and college success through its alumni program, the Legacy Network. The success of BwC Scholars is the product of caring, committed and talented educators who work collaboratively with families to meet the needs of our students. As we continue to develop our Professional Learning Community we invite talented and innovative educators to join us in our mission to provide quality instruction to every child in every classroom.

All teachers share accountability for the academic success of our students. As a professional learning community, we work collaboratively to enhance student learning and build a positive school culture.
