Edward W. Brooke Charter School (EWBCS) opened in August 2002 and began with 80 students in the 5th grade. The school currently serves 275 students in grades 5 to 8 from various neighborhoods in Boston, particularly Dorchester, Roxbury, and Mattapan. EWBCS was founded by some of the staff at Boston Collegiate Charter School (BCCS), formerly the South Boston Harbor Academy, with the goal of disseminating the best practices developed during the school's first four years and extending the opportunity for a free public college preparatory education to more of Boston's children.
