Delivering Excellence in Education

The Crispus Attucks Elementary School is an exemplary public school located in Stuyvesant Height section of Brooklyn. We take pride in delivering outstanding education. Our teachers are highly trained, motivated and caring individuals who are committed to helping our students reach their full potential.

A Community Based School

There is a high level of involvement and support from our parents and volunteers. There are opportunities for teachers and parents to meet to discuss students' progress and enhance the home and school partnership to further support the academic goals for our children. Our strong relationships with the community contribute to the creation of a safe and secure school environment.

"The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery."

We seek to create an environment that   provides for the emotional, physical, spiritual, intellectual, economic and social well-being of the students, parents and the community.
