Our Approach

Stamford Excellence offers a differentiated, project-based learning environment that seeks to develop critical thinking skills in all of our scholars. Our schools are based on our flagship school, the Bronx Excellence 1, which was awarded a National Blue Ribbon from the US Department of Education in the category of Exemplary High Performing Schools.

We have a nationally-recognized teaching structure that holds scholars, their families, and faculty to a high standard through the use of a focused, college-bound, liberal arts-based curriculum, supplemented by after school programs and summer activities. 

Stamford Excellence differs from other charter public schools because of its award-winning Excellence Model.
