The school, which serves over 250 high school students, is located in three sites across Brooklyn. The Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP) explains that each of the three sites supports students with different disabilities; The main campus serves students with emotional disabilities and intellectual disabilities, the Sunset Park High School location serves students with Autism and intellectual disabilities, and the Telecommunications High School location serves school phobic students. The attendance rate for the 2015-2016 school year was 67 percent, according the CEP.

In addition, the school offers work opportunities to its students. Two of the main work sites are Kings County Hospital and Fort Hamilton army base. However, there are also many work sites for students based in the Sunset Park area that include culinary, retail and clerical opportunities, the Comprehensive Education Plan explains.
