Brooklyn School for Collaborative Studies is a NYC Outward Bound School. We use the Expeditionary Learning model, which has its roots in Outward Bound. We are a diverse and respectful community committed to developing students and staff who are kind, openminded, persistent, responsible, and courageous. With support from peers, staff, families and school partners, students engage in challenging academic and social experiences that prepare them for college level learning and full participation in civic life. Students learn to apply their intellect and effort to benefit themselves and their community.
