Our Mission: The Brooklyn Latin School provides a specialized, classical education, including the study of Latin and Greek, in a disciplined academic environment. It provides the groundwork for an understanding of the foundation of our society, while developing the leadership capacity of our students so that they may serve as leaders in their communities. Specialized: The Brooklyn Latin School is one of only nine specialized high schools in New York City. All TBLS students take the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT) for admission. There are a number of characteristics that illustrate The Brooklyn Latin School’s status as a specialized high school. First, students at The Brooklyn Latin School are expected to spend three hours on a nightly basis studying and completing their homework. Second, all students are expected to attend a four year college after graduating from TBLS. Finally, TBLS is the only specialized high school to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, an advanced academic and extra-curricular curriculum designed to help students develop the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and skills necessary to participate actively and responsibly in the world community. Classical: The Brooklyn Latin School offers a classical liberal arts curriculum with an emphasis on the classics and Latin language instruction. Instruction emphasizes a core knowledge of the liberal arts that students will use as the basis for further, more detailed exploration. All students are required to adhere to a core curriculum, with four years of Latin, history, mathematics, English, science, and at least two years of World Language. In all classes, students can expect a strong - and continuing - emphasis on structured writing and public speaking, as well as an overarching practice of the kind of analytical thinking that will ensure that all TBLS students are prepared for the rigors of college work.
