ABOUT THE SCHOOLS The Bronx Excellence network of schools has been in operation since 2004 when the founding ECS academy, the Bronx Charter School for Excellence, also known as Bronx Excellence 1 Elementary and Middle, was established. The cornerstone school, Bronx Excellence 1, is a 2012 National Blue Ribbon School, an honor awarded by the United States Department of Education. Bronx 1 was the first charter school in Bronx County to win this distinction and only one of three New York State schools to win the Blue Ribbon that year.

As Bronx Excellence surpasses a decade of success in Parkchester, ECS has also opened Bronx Excellence 2 in Morris Park, Bronx Excellence 3 in Wakefield, and will open Bronx Excellence 4 and 5 in 2018 and 2019, respectively. Stamford Excellence joined the ECS family as our first affiliate school, replicating our multi-award winning, literacy based academic model in the state of Connecticut. As our networks and schools blossom, we would love to invite instructional and administrative candidates to grow with us as well.

Across the Excellence team of staff and faculty, we as a unit believe in and continually emphasize that all children and young adults, regardless of race or ethnicity and socio-economic circumstance, should have equitable access to high-quality educational options within their neighborhood and larger community.


ECS believes every child should have access to free, high-quality educational options, especially in communities where students are historically and institutionally underserved. ECS nurtures the whole child to become critical, humanistic thinkers.
