At Brooklyn Gardens Elementary School, staffers encourage children to investigate and explore. A sense of curiosity and a willingness to ask questions are seen as a plus. The heart of the curriculum is social studies, science and the arts, with a special focus on gardening in a nearby park. Children engage in extended projects in which they plan, discuss, write, read, draw, and build. 100% of students receive free lunch.
