What is Brooklyn Studio's Why?
WHY DO WE OPEN THESE DOORS?
WHAT IS OUR PURPOSE?
WHAT DO WE HOPE FOR OUR YOUNG PEOPLE?
WHAT IMPRINT DO WE WISH TO LEAVE ON OUR STUDENTS?
WE BELIEVE THAT ALL STUDENTS CAN LEARN AND CONTRIBUTE POSITIVELY TO THE COMMUNITY.
OUR VISION IS TO CREATE A LEARNING ENVIRONMENT THAT ALLOWS OUR STUDENTS TO BECOME PRODUCTIVE, SUCCESSFUL MEMBERS OF SOCIETY.
WE MUST STRESS EVERYDAY THE VALUES OF RESPONSIBILITY, HARD WORK, RESPECT AND COOPERATION AND INSTILL IN STUDENTS THE MOTIVATION TO LEARN.
OUR MISSION IS TO CREATE AN INTERDEPENDENT LEARNING COMMUNITY WHERE ALL STUDENTS REGARDLESS OF RACE, ETHNICITY OR DISABILITY BECOME STRATEGIC LEARNERS, CAPABLE OF CREATIVELY AND EFFECTIVELY PROCESSING INFORMATION.
THE COMBINED EFFORTS OF PARENTS, TEACHERS, STUDENTS, AND THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE WILL ENHANCE STUDENTS’ ABILITY TO “LEARN HOW TO LEARN”. THIS WILL ALLOW THEM TO BECOME ACTIVE LEARNERS AND PERFORMERS AFTER THEY LEAVE SCHOOL, CAPABLE OF DEALING WITH NEW KNOWLEDGE AS IT EMERGES AND ENCOURAGES THEM TO MATURE INTO ACTIVE CITIZENS AND LEADERS WHO RESPECT AND CELEBRATE DIVERSITY AND INDIVIDUALITY WITHIN THEIR COMMUNITY.

Students are communicating with each other with dignity and respect.
You can HEAR the thinking.

Our Instructional Focus
We believe that all students learn best when they are ENGAGED. Although S.T.O.R.M. drives our work, we believe that student engagement occurs when students are making their thinking visible in reading, writing and speaking.
What is S.T.O.R.M.?
S.T.O.R.M. is our COMMON LANGUAGE, developed by teachers that epitomizes our Instructional Focus...
S • Student to Student Interaction
T • Text-Based Evidence to Support Ideas
O • Ongoing Checking for Understanding
R • Rigoras Aligned to Webb's DOK
M • Multiple-Entry Points
But there is more...
BrooklynStudio vision, mission and common language also tap into both NYCDOE& NYSED initiatives. They too relate, and at the same time, drive our "WHY?"
