ABOUT BROOKLYN FREE SCHOOL…

Brooklyn Free School (BFS) is a Pre-K through 12th grade independent day school founded in 2003 by a group of parents and teachers recognizing the need for an alternative to the educational choices offered in New York City. BFS is a vanguard in the Democratic Free School movement, currently serving over 80 families. Our educational approach supports students in directing their own learning with the guidance of highly qualified teachers, their peers, and the larger community through internships, classes, workshops, activities and trips. We place the highest value on social/emotional growth and societal change so that students are free to be themselves while practicing empathy for others.

Brooklyn Free School’s mission is education for social justice.
