    Bronx Community Charter school is one of those schools you wished you went to when you were a child. They provide the most well rounded education one can ask for. Bx. Comm. combines structure classroom work along with hands on experience for students. Students go on numerous field trips and conduct in room projects and students are required to present their findings to parents and staff at a number of school activities. As a parent of a graduate I can say she and all the other students are prepared not only for middle school but also learned life long people skills that will carry them through their life. Students at Bx. Comm. can speak publicly and state their position on any topic without fear.

    I love Bronx Community Charter School! The staff is very accessible and receptive to parent input. Every classroom has two teachers which allows them to individualize instruction more effectively. I am a teacher in the Bronx and I have seen first hand how bad schools in this community can be. This school really is not only committed to academic excellence but to creating a nurturing community for teachers parents and students. It is a very special place.
