Teaching at Brooklyn Lab is unlike teaching in a traditional environment. Our teachers know the individual strengths and areas for growth of each of their scholars. By design, our schools are small communities where every scholar is known.
The role of the teacher is to empower scholars to own their learning. Teachers at Brooklyn Lab plan by deeply understanding scholar data, using our personalized learning platform Cortex and determining what group and individual supports are needed for their scholars to move forward on their progression towards mastery of grade level content. This planning and the use of data requires our teachers to consider not only how scholars bring together core content knowledge with both cognitive skills and our CREED values which stress entrepreneurial learning and scholar voice. Our teachers are constantly focused on how to prepare our scholars for the world beyond the classroom and to succeed in jobs that don’t exist yet and we can’t even imagine.
In addition to teaching their course, our faculty understands the value of collaboration. They share best practices across the network, mentor young educators who serve as Fellows, get and implement feedback from coaches and their instructional lead and work as a team to provide their scholars with a high-quality education.
Our focus on the whole scholar and in building our school community has established Brooklyn Lab as one of the best middle schools in the country for academic growth – adding two and three years of academic growth on average for our scholars. We invite you to be part of a transformation in education and to inspire a diverse a group of scholars with a lifelong love of learning.
