Academics

What is the academic expectation of the Bronx Excellence school system? Scholars are beautifully and creatively intelligent, always attentive in class and especially respectful of faculty and the school grounds. All school groups are expected to exceed city and state testing norms through solid study habits in class and at home. When studies are complete, we as a community campus, balance our academic lives with fun, culturally focused festivities and a colorful pallet of enrichment activities offered at all grade levels including language, athletics, music, and the arts.

Our Key Design Elements:

The Key Design Elements are the pillars upon which we build our entire charter and academic program.
