Our founding team is led by Daniel Brink-Washington, a veteran teacher-leader with 15 years of experience in K-12 district, independent and charter schools in Brooklyn and Buffalo, New York. Notably Mr. Brink-Washington was a founding member of Brooklyn Propect Charter School where he served as Director of Student Support Services from 2009 – 2015. Recently, after three years working with Elmwood Village Charter School in Buffalo, Mr. Brink-Washington was awarded a highly competitive UnifiED Fellowship through the Diverse Charter School Coalition engaging in individualized leadership training, while visiting nationally recognized diverse-by-design schools, and serving as a Leadership Fellow at Elmwood Village Charter School.
Mr. Brink-Washington and the founding Board of Trustees envision a school that has the power to bring our community together and change the life trajectories of our students. Our founding team shares a belief that all students deserve a world-class education, and that integrated schools are better for everyone in every way.
