The Brooklyn International High School

Founded in 1994, The Brooklyn International High School is located on a spur of Flatbush Avenue in the Water’s Edge Educational Campus, a former torpedo factory in downtown Brooklyn. The school has a graduation rate just below 90%, and the same rate for college acceptance. Graduates attend a broad range of 2- and 4-year schools, many with the assistance of prestigious national scholarships. In 2012, Brooklyn was recognized by Schools Chancellor Dennis M. Walcott and City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn as one of 24 “Respect for All” schools, a major initiative in the NYC DOE’s effort to combat bullying and harassment based on ethnicity, color, national origin, race, religion, citizenship or immigration status, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, weight, disability, and other characteristics.
