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.
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
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.
