Success Academy is perhaps the most well known charter school organization in New York City.  Founded in 2006 by Eva Moskowitz, a former college professor and New York City Councilwoman, Success Academy currently operates 32 schools in New York City, ten of which are in Brooklyn, and has plans to expand further. Recent run-ins with the Department of Education and the De Blasio administration however have slowed this expansion, including a denial of space at Andries Hudde School in Midwood last year.
