From MUSE Academy

MUSE Academy is an independent private school in Brooklyn. Currently offering Pre-K3 through Grade 2, MUSE Academy fills a critical need for high quality, humanist education. We seek to develop the full potential of every child as lifelong learners, expressive artists, and active citizens in his or her community. Music, movement, and performance are central to the MUSE educational experience and profoundly contribute to cognitive and social development. Our unique Pre-K and Kindergarten programs nurture creativity and a passion for learning from an early age. Our approach engages all the modes through which children learn and communicate — including verbal, analytical, kinesthetic, spatial, social, and emotional — using an inquiry-based learning model.

Ignite a Life of Creative Thinking!

Immersive daily instruction in the arts helps to unlock a student's creative thinking and self-expression! Explore how music, dance, and drama become part of your child's journey at MUSE Academy.

    Excellent teachers, welcoming environment and the kids seem very happy! Spanish AND Music are offered DAILY in addition to outdoor time at local playgrounds and multiple field trips at popular, child-friendly locations in Brooklyn including the Prospect Park Zoo and the Brooklyn Children's Museum. The lack of the full 5 star rating is due to the unknowns around facility expansion and improvement which the entire community knows is necessary given the growth plans in coming years. Enrollment is expected to grow with demand and the staff plans on keeping S-T ratios low, but it's unclear how the current facility can accomodate the growth.

    My scholar currently attends Muse Academy and we are overall impressed with the school thus far. The administration communicates often. My scholar's teachers are attentive, professional, kind, intelligent, and creative. The curriculum is challenging, fun and creative. The class sizes are small and thus meaningful and manageable. The school community is diverse and the students are thriving and kind little humans. As a new school, there will continue to have opportunities to improve and grow. Yet, with a thriving and ambitious parent community that communicates closely with an accommodating and open administration, then Muse Academy is ripe with potential and on the track to greatness. Shout out to Mrs. Courtney, Ms. Cicely and Mr. James.
    My daughter started in Pre-K 4 this fall and I am so impressed with the richness of the arts education and academics starting at a young age. She enjoys music, art, Spanish and dance instruction every single day. She can't wait to get to school every morning and comes home with a smile on her face. The school has been able to offer five days a week onsite instruction this fall and seems to be taking a very serious and thoughtful approach to health and safety issues. Recommend highly to those looking for preschool, kindergarten or grade school in Brooklyn.
