The New York State Education Department recognizes Bronx Excellence 1 as a 2016-2017 Reward School. This honor recognizes "New York State Schools that have the most progress or have the highest achievement in the State with no significant gaps in student achievement."
Excellence Community Schools embraces a culture of accountability and statewide testing practices are no exception. Our goal is to ensure that our scholars are on a successful pathway to and through college. Our curriculum focuses on the content areas of English, Math, and Science, with co-curricular instruction in subjects that include Social Studies, the Arts, Physical Education, Health, and Technology. Up to two hours are spent on Math and ELA everyday.
Content Instructional Specialists, the Chief Academic Officer, principals and the ECS Data Department support teaching staff to ensure that they deliver meaningful and impactful lessons that promote achievement to meet and exceed the NYS Common Core Learning Standards.
Our scholars outperform average proficiency rates of the district, all NYS charter schools and all NYS Public Schools every year in ELA and Math. Additionally, our scholars had a 98% pass rate on High School Regents exams while still enrolled in middle school. Moreover, 66% of our scholars who took Regents exams last year achieved the college and career readiness target. These scholastic achievements help propel our scholars to enroll in top-performing high schools and colleges.
