District 22 is a huge district that stretches from Ditmas Park in central Brooklyn with its grand Victorian mansions to the quiet seaside community of Mill Basin on Jamaica Bay. Although the quality of the schools differs greatly from one end of the district to another, the schools are mostly stable with solid academics.
