William Rainey Harper is the Old Brooklyn community’s newest elementary school. Opened in 2018, we currently have two classrooms for each grade, from preschool to grade 4. We will grow one additional grade each year so students grow with their new school to a target enrollment of about 470 students. We are an International Baccalaureate (IB) candidate school. Our staff will ensure that your child will learn to explore, investigate, research, study and pursue curiosity in a safe and nurturing environment.
Our inquiry-based model of learning for students:
• Empowers student voices.
• Increases motivation and enjoyment.
• Fosters curiosity and a love of learning.
• Encourages students to take ownership of their learning to reach their goals.
We offer four content classes: English language arts, math, science, and social
studies. We also offer four encore classes: art, library, music, physical education,
Extracurriculars include Cub Scouts and Brownie Girl Scout programs.
