Brooklyn Public School 9 - Teunis G. Bergen School
The school was founded in the 1930s and has slowly undergone changes—about twenty years ago, Prospect Heights began its path of gentrification. Formerly a predominately African American community, the neighborhood has, through this slow change, become the diverse and unique cultural and socio-economic community seen today with now a mix of middle class and working class. All our children thrive and become successful and mature graduates who are ready for middle school.
