Some safety concerns
The High School for Service and Learning, one of five small schools on the Erasmus Hall Campus in Flatbush, provides a personalized approach and an emphasis on service to prepare student for college, career or both.
Although many 9th graders come in with low test scores, students are more likely to graduate on time than those at what the city considers comparable schools. An unusually high number of students unable to complete high school in four years, persist and gain their diplomas a year or two later.
Parents responding to a Department of Education survey see the school as welcome and communicative. Staff emphasize community ties and are responsive to parent concerns.
Like their counterparts at some other schools on the historic Erasmus campus, many students don’t feel safe outside the building. But a significant number of Service and Learning students also don’t feel safe inside their school.
Service and Learning shares the building with two 6-12 schools, the well-regarded Science, Technology and Research Early College High School, known as STAR and the Academy for College Preparation and Career Development, as well as two more high schools, Academy of Hospitality and Tourism and High School for Youth and Community Development. Sports teams, including a girls’ flag football squad and a co-ed stunt team, take students from all the schools
Special education: Service and Learning offers some ICT (integrated co-teaching) classes as well as self-contained classes.
Admissions: The school is open to all New York City residents, with priority to Brooklyn students. It typically has room for all who apply and has seats for incoming 10th graders as well. (Gail Robinson, web reports, December 2018)
