I Support Kwenda Collegiate Girls
Kwenda Collegiate Girls Charter School is a proposed K-8th grade college preparatory, all-girls, tuition-free public charter school for Brooklyn, NY primarily serving students from East Flatbush, Flatbush, Canarsie, and East New York.
We know that girls' schools have transformational impact on their alumnae. Currently, only 1% of young women in the United States graduate from girls' schools; however, a staggering 1 in 4 Congresswomen are alumnae of girls' schools. New York City is home to some of the most successful and storied single-gender independent schools in the country. Yet, there is only one existing public elementary all-girls school in the entire borough of Brooklyn. Kwenda Collegiate Girls strives to be an additional high-quality option for families and students seeking a single-gender, college preparatory setting.
Our Mission: Kwenda Collegiate Girls Charter School educates young women in kindergarten through eighth grade in an academically rigorous, structured, and supportive community that prepares all students to graduate from college with the courage to lead.
I am signing this petition to affirm that I have read Kwenda Collegiate Girls' mission, I believe in this mission, and I would like to see Kwenda Collegiate Girls open as a free, public charter school in the fall of 2020.
Thank you for your support. Let's "go".
