Elementary Academy

Leadership Prep Ocean Hill Charter School prepares students to succeed in high school, college, and beyond. Through academic achievement, our students earn opportunities in life for themselves and their families and prepare to contribute as leaders in their communities.

Leadership Prep Ocean Hill opened in August 2010 to 145 Kindergarten and 1st Grade students.

Similar to other schools in the Brooklyn network, Leadership Prep Ocean Hill offers a rigorous, college-preparatory program in a safe and structure environment. The school is led by Principal Rachel King and Director of Operations Nikhil Kumar.

Mission: College and Contribution

Leadership Prep Ocean Hill is about College and Contribution. As an elementary school, we teach students the academic skills, knowledge and personal traits necessary to succeed in high school, college, and beyond. Through academic achievement, our students prepare to contribute to their communities as leaders. Our approach is based on the practices proven effective at the highest performing urban public schools in the country.

We believe that an outstanding education, based on strong mastery of academic skills and knowledge, prepares young people to build positive futures for themselves and become community leaders as adults. A culture of academic excellence, in which all children are expected to read on or above grade level, in which all children are expected to master reasoning abstractly and quantitatively, and in which all children are expected to act in respectful and honorable ways-is key to that development. Leadership Prep is dedicated to providing the outstanding education necessary to develop leaders.

Leadership Prep Elementary Academy currently serves three classes of Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade, Third Grade, and Fourth Grade. 

Inspiration

Leadership Prep is based on the practices and approaches of the highest performing urban public schools in the country. These schools use structure, academic rigor, and extra support to achieve college success and exemplary character. Through reliance on the practice and approaches proven to work at successful schools, we will ensure that our students achieve at the highest levels in high school, college, and beyond.
