There are many benefits of attending an elite school like TBLS, but its accessible, and for most students, new location in Brooklyn is amongst the top reasons to attend.
Opportunities at Brooklyn Latin
At Brooklyn Latin, students are mandated to study Latin language and cultural texts and adopt very specific methodologies for problem solving. In addition, students learn the value of being well-spoken by engaging in public declamations, or speeches, in their English and History classes. Furthermore, classes are quite often turned into Socratic seminars in order to foster inquisitive thoughts and ideas. Students can also get involved in interesting student life activities.
For starters, by attending Brooklyn Latin you will be able to take advantage of clubs like Latineer, the school’s newspaper, or Libellus, its literary magazine. As a school with deep roots in Latin, many student activities center around it. Furthermore, you can become part of the Legati, students (or disculpi as Brooklyn Latin calls them) who represent TBLS at events in and around their school community and serve as ambassadors to Brooklyn communities. There is also a strong Science Olympiad Team for those who are interested in the sciences. There are also conferences led by students in order to help students gain awareness of their strengths and weaknesses.
If you hope to attend TBLS and get involved at school through many student leadership experiences, then it is important that you put your best efforts into studying for the SHSAT.
IB coursework exposes students to what college coursework will be like and gets them accustomed to the college level grading scale. IB candidates take IB courses in literature, languages, social studies, the experimental sciences, mathematics and an art elective. Furthermore, students must write a 4,000-word essay about how humans and knowledge systems have changed throughout time. These unique requirements at Brooklyn Latin lead its students to be more compassionate, well-rounded, and understanding.
