Sheepshead Bay High School is a public high school in Brooklyn, New York City, New York.

Mission[edit]

Sheepshead Bay High School is a large, multi-cultural high school in Brooklyn, New York. There are currently 2,673 students enrolled, in grades 9 through 12. The largest group is African American (65.2%), followed by Hispanics (15.7%), Asian or of Asian descent (9.9%) and white (8.5%%). 580 students are English language learners, and around 400 are special education students.

In later years, Sheepshead Bay High School was thought of by some as a dumping ground for students with low grades. There was talk for years of closing it after 50 years. SBHS opened in 1959 and the first graduating class was 1961.

Closure[edit]

March 12, 2013 voted to approve plans to phase out Sheepshead Bay High School and introduce four new schools.[1]
