About Us

The Bronx Charter School for Excellence (BCSE), also known as Bronx Excellence, was established in 2004, in the Parkchester neighborhood of the Bronx, NY. Bronx Excellence is a 2012 National Blue Ribbon Schools Award honoree – the U.S. Department of Education's highest honor for schools across the country. Bronx Excellence was renamed Bronx Excellence 1 and Middle in 2016 when Excellence Community Schools opened Bronx Excellence 2 in Morris Park. These replica schools are based on the Blue Ribbon model of Bronx Excellence 1 and will grow one grade level per year to full service K-8 academies.
