Future Forward

Writing the Next Chapter

At Coney Island Prep Upper Elementary School, we focus on developing the full range of critical thinking skills through a rigorous Common Core aligned curriculum, while increasing exposure to electives in the performing arts. Our scholars transition from learning to read, to reading to learn, tackle new skills through our PRIDE Advisory curriculum, and fall deeper in love with learning and developing a growth mindset.
