“Home of the Evergreens”

Achievement First East Brooklyn High is focused on an important goal: 100% of students will be accepted into four-year colleges and universities.

How do we get there? We combine challenging courses and high expectations. We also make sure our students have access to all of the support that their wealthy and private school peers receive. Our support includes SAT prep, intensive college counseling and tutoring. Our classes help our students grow into leaders who not only listen to lessons, but also lead discussions and exchange ideas. Here, our students also grow as athletes, volunteers, leaders, and citizens of the world. We are proud of our school’s strong extracurricular programs. And, we’re proud that our support extends beyond high school graduation. Our high school counselors will work closely with our alumni after our first senior class graduates in 2020.
