In 2005, under the leadership of New York City Schools Chancellor Joel Klein, Achievement First was invited to expand to Brooklyn, NY. One of Chancellor Klein's core reform strategies was to locate high-performing public charter schools in New York's lowest-performing districts. Achievement First opened three schools in central Brooklyn: Achievement First Crown Heights Elementary and Middle Schools and Achievement First East New York Elementary School. The Brooklyn network has continued to grow, and we currently operate 17 schools in the borough.
