Downtown Expansion + Merger News
We're thrilled to announce that Prospect Schools will be taking full occupancy of 80 Willoughby Street in Downtown Brooklyn, the building which currently houses our Downtown Elementary School. We are also proud to share that, just yesterday, our authorizer SUNY approved our application to merge with International Charter School of New York. SUNY's approval gives us the green light to move forward with our plan to bring International into the Prospect community. What this means is that the formal integration of our two organizations can start happening in earnest. Though ICS won’t technically become part of Prospect Schools until July 1, 2021, over the next five months we plan to bring families and teams together in intentional ways to join our cultures, traditions, and communities. This process will bring our passionate parents and excellent educators closer together as we look forward to welcoming all our students this fall at 80 Willoughby Street. Read the full update here.
Thank you for your careful attention to all of the above. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
