New Beginnings Charter School Expanding into Williamsburg

New high school programming will be coming to the Williamsburg neighborhood in the fall of 2024 by the New Beginnings Charter School. The Bedford-Stuyvesant-based charter school founded in 2010 currently operates a kindergarten through eighth-grade program at its 82 Lewis Avenue campus, and following authorization by the New York City Department of Education will be expanding its charter. The new facility will be located at 217 North 10th Street in a 51,498-square-foot space at the base of the mixed-use condominium built in 2022. The space includes 7,398 square feet on the ground level with a private entrance and about 22,000 square feet on both the 2nd and 3rd floors. In addition to the dedicated entrance, ceiling heights on the ground floor and the private outdoor space were crucial factors in securing the 35-year lease.
