Leadership Prep Bedford Stuyvesant Charter School is about College and Contribution. In both our Elementary Academy and our Middle Academy, we teach students the academic skills, knowledge and personal traits necessary to succeed in high school, college, and beyond. Through academic achievement, our students prepare to contribute as leaders in their communities. Our approach is based on the practices proven effective at the highest performing urban public schools in the country.
We believe that an outstanding education, based on strong mastery of academic skills and knowledge, prepares young people to build positive futures for themselves and become, as adults, community leaders. A culture of academic excellence-in which all children are expected to read on or above grade level, in which all children are expected to master one year of high school algebra by the end of grade 8, and in which all children are expected to act in respectful and honorable ways-is key to that development. Leadership Prep is dedicated to providing the outstanding education necessary to develop leaders. Leadership Prep Bedford Stuyvesant Charter School is part of the Uncommon Schools network.
