Family and Community Engagement
ECS is very proud of the fine tradition of distinction in its community engagement efforts. We encourage our scholars and their families to strive for success both in the classroom and at home.
Bronx Excellence and Stamford Excellence have several school-based cornerstones to guarantee that active parent engagement and open collaboration with the community are met. When new families enroll, they participate in a family chat with the Principal to explain and discuss the academic and behavioral expectations. At the middle school level, 7th and 8th graders get connected with our High School Placement and Alumni Services staff during their various application processes. Accompanied by meetings and follow-ups to ease the steps into high school and college life, our faculty work and meet with parents year-round in order to actively listen to the family and community.
Bronx Excellence and Stamford Excellence Parent Associations partner with Ms. Rivera, Director of Community & Family Engagement in the Bronx, or Mr. Phipps, Director of Advocacy & Policy in Stamford for various events.
