Our Approach

Stamford Excellence offers a differentiated, project-based learning environment that seeks to develop high-level analytical and critical thinking skills in all of our scholars. Our schools are based on our flagship, the Bronx Charter School for Excellence, which was awarded a National Blue Ribbon from the US Department of Education in the category of "Exemplary High-Performing School."

Stamford Excellence differs from other charter management organizations because we have the Blue Ribbon award-winning Key Elements of the Excellence Education Model, which consist of:

  • High Academic Standards Focused on Preparing Kids for College and Career
  • Extended Schools Days to Incorporate Enriched Learning Activities
  • A Commitment to Academic Performance Accountability
  • A Broad Liberal Arts Education that Emphasizes Critical Thinking
  • Clear Standards for Conduct and Mandatory Uniforms
  • Active Parent Engagement and Open Collaboration with the Community

We have a highly-decorated, nationally-recognized, teaching structure implemented on clean, safe grounds where our principles for engaging the larger community and commitment to keeping faculty, scholar, and scholar-families within a conduct standard and performance accountability standard are executed through a focused, on a college-bound, liberal arts-based curriculum, supplemented by colorful afterschool and summer activities.
