New Middle School Coming to Fort Greene


According to The Local, Fort Greene will get a new 300-seat middle school starting in the Fall of 2010. The Fort Greene Preparatory Academy, as it will be called, will be located at 100 Clermont Avenue where PS 46 currently is. The academics will be structured around Socratic seminars and the arts. “The goal of the school is to be driven by student inquiry,” said Paula Lettiere, the intended principal. “We’re seeking to move away from traditional curriculum.” This sounds like a pretty conscious effort to provide an alternative to the PS 20 approach that has turned off so many of the families that have moved to the neighborhood in recent years.
