Our @af_crownheights scholars showed up to school as their future selves for Career Day last week! 👩🏽🏫⛹🏿♂️🧑🏾⚕️ We love seeing our students pursue their passions and dream big, and we can’t wait to see all the wonderful things they do in the future.
In our newest blog post, we spotlight an Achievement First Amistad High School student, Fatima, and her journey from Mr. Ken Soder`s AP Government and Political Science class to speaking as an advocate for her community on Capitol Hill.
Read more at the link in our bio to see how students like Fatima make a difference.
AF is proud to be part of the Charter Management Organization Coalition! The organization works with families to advocate for high-quality public charter schools and prioritize our students` needs. With over 320,000 students – predominantly Black & Latinx from historically underfunded areas – the organization’s goal is to ensure every child receives quality education. We recently had the opportunity to go to D.C. and meet with senators and decision-makers to discuss topics like mental health and school safety, highlighting the importance of these issues in our communities. Together, we`re making a difference!
On #GivingTuesday, Achievement First would like to shine a light on this global day of generosity. This day provides us with the opportunity to thank everyone who has helped AF provide a high quality education to our scholars, and all the people who would like to partner with us to improve the learning of many students to come. Because of our dedicated community and supporters, we are able to impact the lives of many scholars, like the ones in this video!
We hope you believe in AF’s mission as much as we do. If you are inclined, you can donate at the link in our bio!
We`re still full (of food and gratitude) after our long weekend! Check out this video sharing how our school leaders at AF North Brooklyn Prep ES showed gratitude for their staff: with pies, apple cider, and recognition for the great work they do for students! We ❤️our staff! 🍂🥧
At Achievement First, today is #gratitudeday and we want to take a moment to show appreciation for all of our families, scholars, employees, and supporters. You make AF special and we are grateful for you everyday! We`re spreading joy today and hope that you are too!
Today is the inaugural day of student learning in our stunning new AF Linden Middle School facility! Our dedicated staff, operations, and facilities teams have eagerly worked toward this momentous day.

Attention Brooklyn parents: AF Linden MS has available seats and is ready for your middle schooler to enroll!
And please rest assured that we`ll have a grand opening ceremony in the springtime when our students and staff have settled in 🎉
Today, we honor the many veterans within our AF community. Swipe to read about the inspiring journey of our Associate Chief of Development, Aaron Obrochta, as he transitioned from a military career to one in education. Our appreciation goes out to Aaron and all the veterans in our community for both their service and contributions to our students.
