Excel Upper Charter School is a 5–8 public school in Canarsie, Brooklyn. In service of our mission to provide our students with the academic skills and critical-thinking abilities they need to succeed in a college-preparatory high school, Excel Upper partners with the Excel Lower campus.  Excel Upper opened its doors in 2013 and prioritizes academics, ensuring scholars are exposed to reading, writing, mathematics, social studies or science, and enrichment five days each week. Intervention blocks are built into our daily schedule. Excel Upper offers support services to meet students’ individual needs and provides, ample opportunities for family involvement.

Excel Upper is a community-oriented school that works in service of our mission. The type of community we have is very special because of the people, the staff, families, and children. We work to create an environment that is consistent, predictable, and fair. We find ways to collaborate with our staff, families, and students in pursuit of the mission and the priorities that guide our work each day.
