Our Structure


Beginning with Children Charter School 2 (BwCCS 2) is a nurturing community that fosters a love of learning and the development of character for students in grades K-8. Our students achieve academic excellence and are prepared to succeed in top performing high schools and colleges. BwCCS 2 students develop and use G.R.I.T. (Good Judgment, Resilience, Integrity, and Teamwork) for personal and community improvement.


Beginning with Children Charter School II opened its doors in September 2012. BwCCS 2 provides more options for families in Williamsburg and Bedford-Stuyvesant, currently serving grades K-5.
