Our Mission

The Mission of the Brooklyn High School of the Arts is to have the participation of the entire school community in support of the best educational opportunity for students. This includes district and school administrators, teachers, parents, and community in providing and supporting a comprehensive, rigorous academic, arts oriented curriculum that meets New York State and New York City standards. At the same time, this curriculum will encourage and nurture our youth to use their words and expressions, their rhythms and sounds, their impressions and designs, their movements and actions in fulfilling their potential, their dreams and aspirations. Each student member of BHSA is expected and encouraged to actualize his/her full potential in all academic and career pursuits.
