Applied Learning for Classroom and Life
Gotham Scholars is proud to partner with Advantage Testing to provide elite test preparation starting in 11th grade.

Gotham Scholars is proud to partner with the Brooklyn Debate League to provide subject matter expertise in structured communication and debate.

They then use these skills in regular intra-high school tournaments to strengthen their confidence and quick-thinking communication skills.
