Welcome Principal Eric Havlik!

The School Leadership Team has been officially notified that Eric Havlik will serve as the next principal at the Brooklyn School of Inquiry!

Until recently, Mr. Havlik served as principal at P.S. 154 in Windsor Terrace, a well-regarded neighborhood school. He was a standout among the candidates, and we are very lucky to have him join the BSI community.

Mr. Havlik will introduce himself to you formally in the next few days.

Thanks to everyone for their patience with the process!

Congratulations to BSI’s Class of 2017!

We couldn’t be prouder of BSI’s first graduating class, who received their diplomas this evening at Grand Prospect Hall with their parents, Donna, their teachers and Chancellor Farina in attendance.

We will share photos as we collect them. Best of luck to our founding class and families – we are so proud of you all.
