Coney Island Prep Lower Elementary School, a free public charter school, is nestled in the vibrant neighborhoods of Coney Island, Brighton Beach, Sheepshead Bay, and surrounding areas in Brooklyn (zip codes 11224, 11235, 11229). We blend joy, rigor, and high expectations to ensure our scholars in Kindergarten through second grade are well-prepared to succeed. With two teachers in every classroom, smaller teacher-to-student ratios help accelerate learning and allow for tailored instruction for each scholar, regardless of their background or starting point. We are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive educational environment that empowers our young learners to thrive academically and socially.
