BUGS is a new, 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 by studying the natural environment of  Brooklyn and the rest of New York City.
  • A safe, welcoming, and respectful school climate supports equity and access for all learners.
  • Teachers collaborate regularly to create interdisciplinary projects.
  • Students design, build and maintain an on-site garden.

  

We are located at 500 19th Street,
within the Bishop Ford High School 
in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn.
