Brooklyn Independent empowers middle school (6th-8th grade) students from across Brooklyn with the best possible education—academically, socially, and ethically—to forge a better path forward. To achieve diversity and inclusion in our classroom, our school uses a unique sliding scale tuition model. With the right foundation, we know our children can be powerful agents of change. We believe great things happen at the intersection of rigor, passion, and a commitment to inclusion in all its forms.

Our small school environment prioritizes a student body and community of educators and families who prioritize learning boldly, growing fiercely, and impacting others.
