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.
BUGS is still enrolling and accepting 6th grade students for the
2014-2015 school year!
Please see our Admissions Page for more information.
BUGS is honored to have received both the city-wide and borough-wide
It is a great accomplishment for BUGS
to be held as a standard of sustainability in our first year of operation
and is a testament to the staff and students' hard work.
