Young people in New York City face daily challenges that are barriers to success. Those who grow up chronically poor or homeless, who experience trauma or are in foster care, are more likely to need special education help. They’re also less likely to get it.
Half of our students are homeless or in foster care.
Two-thirds qualify for free lunch.
Nearly 25% are special education students.
Yet our special education students have an 88% Regents diploma graduation rate – compared to a 45% rate among peer public schools in New York City. Many of our students go on to college and excel.
Thanks to your support, we help young people who need specialized instruction overcome obstacles, graduate from high school and launch their futures. Please make a gift today.
Broome Street Academy is a tuition-free public charter high school located in the Lower East Side. Your donation allows us to provide the necessary skills and support needed in order to prepare our young people for post-secondary success.
