On Tuesday, December 13th from 5:30 - 6:30 pm and 6:30- 7:30 pm, we will host our Open House Tours for current 5th grade families interested in learning more about Brooklyn Urban Garden Charter School. A short information session followed by a self-guided tour will give insight as to what makes BUGS special and will help equip families with the information needed to make the right choice for the student. Applications will be available for interested families. 

Please RSVP for either Session A (5:30-6:30 pm) or Session B (6:30- 7:30 pm) by clicking here.  See you then!


BUGS is a community-based charter school where students study the natural and social environment across all subjects, using a hands-on, inquiry-based approach. Students of all backgrounds and abilities are welcome.

BUGS is a small, welcoming middle school where…

  • Students gain strong academic skills.
  • A safe, welcoming, and respectful school climate supports all learners.
  • Teachers collaborate regularly to create interdisciplinary projects.
  • Students design, build and maintain an on-site garden and a native wildlife habitat.
