As a parent and pediatric therapist, I think this is one of the best schools in the Bronx area. It has the feeling of a small private school located in an urban area.The teachers, administrators, and support staff are always dressed professionally and know how to address parents in an respectable manner. The students are very courteous and are being taught at an early age about not only the importance of going to college, but on becoming potential leader in society. I also appreciate the way the school incorporates dance,yoga, music, gym,and art into their curriculum.
My grandson attends this wonderful school. There is always communication between parents and the school personnel. Everyone works as a team to keep the scholars working at their best. No toleration of bullying, or rudeness. Emphasis is always placed on respect, courtesy, and team effort. My Grandson's fourth grade teacher is one in a million, never too busy to address whatever concern a parent or child has. I highly recommend applying. BCSE has its own property, and are now building a brand new middle school next to the elementary school.
BCSE is great! My child was accepted mid year and the entire faculty made the transition so easy for our family. This school goes above and beyond for the students. They challenge them in all areas. The also help them to succeed. This school is always ready and wiling to assist student and parents. We feel blessed to be a BCSE family
I have three children in this school and we have truly been blessed. The administrative and teaching staff are very dedicated to the scholars. My only regret is that there isn't a high school, however I am very confident that my children will excel wherever they attend HS because of this school. Thank you BCSE.
good school just harsh with the methods. they teach however they teach with force. they have a high teacher turnover as well.
I applied to this school for 4 and 6th grade, and I don't know my kids standing as yet, but I would like to know about their policy on bullying of any kind and about the tolerance of it at school and on school busing? I would also like to know about extra curricular activities like music, art, dance, theater etc any of these take place here? Help a parent decide. Thanks
Excellent just like it's name. The culture and learning environment of the school is one of the best I have ever seen. I am so glad that my daughter is attending this school. Truly a blessing
I would like to sign up my 2 children in this school. Is this school accepting new intakes?
Wow let me first start by saying that "WE ROCK" yes B.C.S.E is an excellent school. I'm so thankful that my daughter got selected at the lottery, I mean i really did win the lottery. My daughter is getting a great education, the curriculum is great the staff from the teachers to the principal is phenomenal. The PA team is so dedicated and always trying their best to get parents involve, They are wonderful :D! My daughter got accepted to 6 top charter schools- Icahn 2,3,4 and 5, Harlem Success Academy 1 and Bronx Charter School for excellence and I definitely made the right choice by choosing Bronx Charter School For Excellence. My daughter is currently in kindergarten and is doing great ( academics). This schools has really been a blessing to our family.
Great school!! always pushing kids to do their best and maintaining them focused on what's important-their education. Their curriculum is well balanced with very high academic expectations, in addition to music, phys. ed, dance, art every week. They also offer a variety of extracurricular activities to help the child develop more rounded and have fun while in school. Great staff, very professional and caring from the Principal down to the receptionist. Very safe and clean environment. I am very very happy my daughters (3rd & 1st graders) are attending this school, this is their second year there and I couldn't be more pleased. Looking forward to the years ahead.
I have two children. One of them goes to Icahn charter school 4 and the second goes to Bronx charter school for excellence. I am happy that they go to the two best charter schools of the Bronx. These schools operate like private schools. The school is doing better and better every year. As a parent I recommend this school. My daughter is in kindergarten and she is already reading.
Bronx Charter school Excellence is a great school! my kids can read since kindergarten and they're doing very well in math.
BCSE is an excellent school. Both staff and students work really hard to excel. Parents are involved and get the opportunity to participate in their children's education to make every effort worth. Discipline is noticeable, specially when kids are out on trips with other schools. They get homework every single day, projects on holiday weekends, special summer project for every entrance grade after summer vacation. The whole school gets involve in preparation for NYS tests providing Saturday Academy classes. They are very organized, keep parents informed of activities. Environment is safe. Staff is courteous and helpful. Respect is in the air. Kids wear uniform and I love the fact that my kids don't get exposed to the "brand name" pressure. It promotes discipline in many ways, and help them stay focus in "learning" instead of showing off fashion. This school has 0 tolerance for bullying and disrespect. Students are disciplined right in the spot. They have the excellence mentality, always challenging kids to do their best. We all have to work hard, but it pays off. I cannot imagine my kids in any other environment.
The staff are dedicated and focused on the individual child's progress. They have a very adult-like approach with the middle school students. They have a no nonsense attitude toward the students' responsibilities. Although sometimes harsh and a bit abrasive their model works!!! Parent involvement is essential and they are not shy about demanding it. Saturday classes are mandatory (in full uniform). The students' state exam scores reflect the schools efforts.
Awesome school. Has lots of fun activities. And more oppurtunities for learning and excellence for college.
ITS AN EXCELLENT SCOOL JUST OUTSTANDINGG ILOVE THE SCHOOL .MY KIDS GO THERE AND THEY LOVE IT
The school's focus is the academics but discipline and development of the whole child is a close second. The realize that what happens at home, in the community and at school affects the child's ability to learn.
My son just graduated this June. Make sure that you get involved with the teachers and staff. Some of the teachers need to be watched carefully. They can be very harsh at times. Sometimes can even be discouraging to the child and parent. I believe favortisim plays a big factor with some of the teachers.
This is an excellent school. My daughter will be graduating from the 5th grade this year. The morale among the staff and administration is high. They know each child by name and truly care. My daughter is nervous about entering another school. Truth be told, so am I. My youngest is currently in the 2nd grade and will have the benefit of Bronx Charter School for a few more years. If your child is selected via the lottery system you've won big. The curriculum is awesome. It's slightly untraditional, but it gets through to the children and they are excelling. Bronx Charter School is a blessing!
