The level of self-independence differs for each student. At Gwendolyn Brooks College Prep, we believe every student can learn self-advocacy skills that will prepare them for their post-secondary goals. In addition, we believe that education is a partnership between students, teachers, administrators, parents and the community. The goal of Brooks Diverse Learners Department is to provide opportunities for Diverse Learners to access the rich and rewarding curricula.
