Air Force ROTC
Cypress Hills Collegiate Prep was founded in 2006 by a community housing group, Cypress Hills Local Development Corp., with the hope that students would become involved in improving their Brooklyn neighborhood through community service. The Cypress Hill Local Development Corp. works with students to help prepare them for college.
The school offers classes in aviation, and students may take part in the Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps. ROTC is designed to train high school cadets in citizenship; promote community service; instill responsibility, character, and self-discipline; and provide instruction in air and space fundamentals, according to the school’s Comprehensive Education Plan.
Students say they feel safe and teachers are enthusiastic about the leadership of Principal Elizabet Guy.
The school is housed in the Franklin K. Lane building on the Queens-Brooklyn border, near the Cypress Hills Cemetery and several public housing developments. Students must pass through metal detectors.
Admissions: In recent years the school has had seats for everyone who applied. (Clara Hemphill, DOE statistics, August 2018)
