This school is fun. the teachers interact with the students in a fun way.at the end of each year they have big trips 5th grade goes camping 6th grade goes to washington d.c 7th grade goes to boston and 8th grade goes to virginia when you get to high school you stay overnight at colleges. and u visit colleges on all these trips.

I was a student at bronx prep and please be aware that this school is not all it is orally portrayed as. Yes, students get to experience a good programs and nice trips but that is the fullest intent of this school. Teachers tend to give up on challenging students and act like kids. I have witnessed in my 8th grade year at bronx prep that teachers will be more of a friend to a student and endorse ignorant acts. Our own dean used curse words and even went as far as to threaten students with detentions because they were not liked. Some children have parents that work in the school and are given specie treatments like office privileges. The principal is an absolute pessimist and very rude to kids. she usually treated ones she's known to be kiss ups better. DONT LET YOU CHILD GO TO BRONX PREP. you will completely lose the child you used to know, don't be fooled by the pretty building.

This is my daughters first year at Bronx Prep. The school goals and directions are very good and obtainable with hard work. I think the behavior standards should be higher since the academic goals are set high. The students should not be able to act like they are on the street but in an institution that is expecting the best. Please don't slack off with the students behavior or the school will just be another school instead of an outstanding school. The staff are very supportive from the lunch staff to the supervisors. With a little more attention in the areas of student behavior, enrichment classes (spanish, tennis, swimming and etc),textbooks and field trips(Broadway shows, art shows etc) this school will be outstanding. Don't forget to do something that connect parents with other parents, such as parent dinners, movie night, game night and etc..

I am a student at this school, and I will be graduating this year of June 2009. This school is excellent in getting students into college, and this school has exposed me to many programs that have helped me reach higher success, such as (MS)2 and College Now. This school has also challenged me in AP classes, and the school wants the best for all minority students, which is why I believe you should let your child come to this school.

Hello my name is Dhannayia Johnson I attend bronx prep charter school I am currently a sophmore. I feel that my school sets a higher standard which hepls to push the students to work much harder. seeing that we are prep school the harder work is given to show you a portion of what college will be like. I first came to bronx prep within their second year opening i found the school to be challenging but as you move along and adjust to the people and classes you feel less pressured. the staff as well as students are some what friendly but we don't go to school to make friends we are there for our education. I think bronx prep is one of the best schools in the bronx aside from kipp and kappa academy. you should look into the school it's really great.

Bronx Prep. is a great school. I choose this school when my son when in the third grade after watching two students that attended the school. They made a lasting impression. My son loves Bronx Prep. as do I. He is taking Latin and music which is no longer taught in public school. His teacher and I have a great relationship and we speak via e-mail a few times a week. So I'm aware of what's going on in his class. Since they only accept 5th grader he will be with same students until he graduates from high school. Bronx Prep. is a community school meaning everyone knows everyone. And they make you feel very comfortable and encourage you to participate in school activities. If you choose this school for your child you can be secure in your decision.

Bronx Prep is an excellent school. It teaches the children in a traditional setting and they have traditional ways of teaching.My son loves the school. If you need the teachers you can call them or e-mail them at any time. The work is excellent and they don't teach to the state test , they incorporate it in their daily lessons. The school my son was in last year focused everything thing around the test. Now he is well rounded in all his areas.Music is mandatory and he is taken Latin in the 5th grade.They also have mandatory enrichment, which is great and he loves it. They also focus a lot on preparing for college in the future. Their classes or not numbers they are named after colleges. If you consider a charter school choose this one.

Bx Prep is an excellant school. It's very hard to find a quality middle school in the Bronx, but Bx Prep meets the standards of any Private school. Besides Math and Literacy , my child receives Piano lessons every day. What other school mandates that each child has every teachers phone number so they can receive homework help or parents can speak to them every day until 10pm? My child and I both love this school!

About the tests


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. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Regents Examinations to test high school students in English, math, global history and geography, US history and government, living environment, chemistry, Earth science and physics. Students must take at least five Regents Exams in order to graduate. Scores of 65 and above are passing; scores of 55 and above earn credit toward a local diploma (with the approval of the local board of education). The goal is for all students to pass the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the New York Department of Education. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
