The Lyons Community School is located on the third floor of the William J Gaynor Campus in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn. There are three schools in the building, Lyons, The Green School – Academy for Environmental Careers, and The Brooklyn Latin School.
Our beautiful and historic building was built in 1936, and has been the home to I.S. 49 since its inception. We share a library, auditorium, two gymnasiums and cafeteria with the other schools in the building. The auditorium was recently renovated, and high school science labs created for each school.
Within our school, besides regular classroom spaces, we have a dance space and art room. Councilmember Reyna has also given us funding to making improvements and additions to both spaces.
