Our Insights

Brooklyn Dreams Charter School is a charter school in Kensington, serving grades Kindergarten through 8.

Charter schools are tuition-free schools that operate independently of the city Department of Education, and because of this have a lot of leeway over things like discipline codes, school year/day lengths and teaching philosophies. Charter schools can range from super traditional and strict to super progressive with lots of student freedom. Be sure to ask questions when you visit. Most give priority to children who live in the school district in which the school is located and each school runs its own lottery and enrollment process. Check the school's own website for the application and due date listed under "contact" on this page.

To see if your address is in the district for this program please use our school search. For more information about charter school enrollment and advice on how to find a program, please visit our Charter School page.
