New York State Assessments (NYSA)

Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.

    I have worked at Bronx Latin 7 years - this school does in excellent job in preparing our students. Our high school students have the opportunity to take AP classes and College Now classes at Lehman college our advanced 8th graders take the Algebra Living Environment and Spanish regents - and for the students that start in 6th grade and graduate with us in 12th grader there is so much growth. We push students challenge them yet they know we care about them and why we are doing it - because we want them to be ready and successful in college. I am proud to be a teacher at this school.

    This school is beyond amazing. Very professional and on their game when it comes to grades attendence uniform academics and bulling. My daughter has attended Bronx latin for about a year and will be returning for 7th grade in September. I look forward to working close with the teachers and staff.

    Bronx Latin is a very good school. It is very much like a small community where conflict between students is not as bad as it could be. The classes are challenging but the teachers make themselves available to students as much as they can and the Principle is incredible. She knows everyone's name and works very hard for our school and her students; her work shows.

    the Bronx Latin high-school is not a good high school many teachers disrespect you as students and still treat you as if you were still in junior high.

    My son attends Bronx Latin. He is entering his 3rd year. I am pleased so far with the school. I am really impressed with Ms. Pinero the principal. She is a no nonsense take no crap person. I appreciate all that she and the rest of the staff do each and every day.

    i used to go to this school and for me it helped me to become more involved and mature..we are given extreme responsibility but it all is worth it.

    I am one of the founding students of Bronx Latin. I have been attending this school for four years. I am now a Sophmore. This school has changed dramaticlly. Although our school is in a bad neighborhood. The curiculum is very challenging. This in my opinion allows us as students to prosper and widen our knowledge. We now have better schedules and more fun activities such as Gym Dance Studio Music and Art. We also have changed our floors in the school and now no longer have to interfere with the other schools as much which was one of the main problems in the first years of the school. Eventually there will be no flaws but as for now we are the best we can be! LV
