A lot of garage break-ins, drug dealers, and just generally bad teenagers roaming the street looking for trouble. Had to change from their public school and be put in a private school because of bullying and how bad the academic system was at Brooklyn City Schools
Review Brooklyn
I was raised in Brooklyn. I went to and graduated from Brooklyn City Schools in 2004. Currently I have two children enrolled in the same district. One of my children are special needs. I do not feel that any other surrounding school district would have the time and patience with him that the Brooklyn staff provides. Brooklyn is a very quiet city. Neighbors are very friendly and keep an eye out for one another.
Everyone is really involved in here, everyone owns a Brooklyn sweater or sweatpants, every parent is cheering for their child. Brooklyn is a small community, a child went recently missing which has never happened in Brooklyn. Tbe whole community created a search party and went to look for this girl and it was wonderful to see everyone helping out.
