Williamsburg Northside is a progressive school that has served Brooklyn since 1999. Our community of 350 students is supported by three age-appropriate campuses, an outstanding faculty, and programs driven by student inquiry and a wide range of enrichments. Our Lower School moved into a new facility in 2014 and we continue to grow. We are located near the L and G train stops in Williamsburg and plan to offer busing for September 2017. Attend an open house by visiting willnorth.org or emailing email@example.com.
