Brooklyn East Collegiate Charter School (BEC) opened in August 2010 to 81 students in grade 5 and has grown one grade per year. BEC now serves grades 5-8.
At Brooklyn East Collegiate Charter School, we do not believe that there is a single solution that makes a school work. Nor do we pretend that what we do is "rocket science" or necessarily innovative. We work hard and use common sense because elevating student achievement and transforming lives requires constant attention to hundreds of different elements — not one, magical 100% solution but rather one hundred, individual 1% solutions.
