    We couldn’t be happier with BROOKLYN PROSPECT CHARTER SCHOOL. They have a k-5 in District 13, Clinton Hill middle school in D13 and Windsor Terrace middle school district 15, and High School in Windsor Terrace serving Districts 13/15. It’s worth checking out for a continuous K-12 education, as well as a guaranteed HS. Def worth checking out.
