Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
Coney Island Prep is a place where students and staff of all backgrounds, experiences and identities are valued and can excel. We engage in creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for our students and each other through ongoing programming throughout the year, as featured here!
Coney Island Prep is a community based school, and we work hard to be an integral member of this vibrant part of Brooklyn. We work closely with the Alliance for Coney Island and other neighborhood organizations to co-host various community events throughout the year, including a turkey giveaway at Thanksgiving, and an evening celebrating reading at the local library.
We believe in the importance of being lifelong learners, and that belief drives us to invest in the continued professional development of all of our staff. We have early dismissal at all three campuses every Friday, which allows our staff to convene for three hours of professional development every week. We also encourage our staff to seek outside workshops and conferences throughout the year.
Rewards and Recognition
We’re always looking for ways to say thank you for the amazing, tireless work you do. We’re no stranger to a Friday happy hour and we look forward to unwinding and celebrating the accomplishments of the year at our holiday and end of year parties. In addition, staff who continue on to their second year at Coney Island Prep receive a $2,000 retention bonus.
We know that a healthy work-life balance centered on sustainability is important. We’re constantly rethinking how we structure our school day, time off, and supports that we offer our team to make sure we are prepared every day. One example of this is what we call Sustainable Fridays, where students and staff can get their weekends started early.
