A World-Class Neighborhood School


Where all kids gain the keys to success


In 2015, we opened the doors of a new kind of school to the families of Brooklyn.

Joyful, yet rigorous. Global in view. Founded on core knowledge. Building the character every child requires to put that knowledge to good use.

Learn more about the core values of ICS, and the curriculum they have inspired.

“An economically diverse, academically rigorous charter in Brooklyn” 


"Matthew Levey of the International Charter School of New York in Brooklyn and Jon Rosenberg of the Hebrew Public charter network have emerged as some of the few local charter leaders explicitly invested in creating more diverse schools"

Our Team

The leaders of ICS are experienced educators with kids of their own. We are committed to creating a new, better model of education for our community.  

With two teachers in every room, we offer an attentive and focused education for all our young learners.

Meet our leadership team and teachers.


A Safe Environment

Feeling secure is a student’s most basic need. We take great care to prevent unsafe behavior.

ICS teachers are trained in the Responsive Classroom philosophy, which helps students self-regulate – not just respond to carrots and sticks. All commit to a Code of Conduct. We also have on-site mental health professionals who teach students to develop necessary coping skills.

We know that no one is perfect. But all can learn from mistakes. Learn more here.
