Mission Statement

At the Bronx Community High School, we believe that students learn best and are able to achieve their highest potential when they are known, accepted and cared about by the adults in the community. We believe that students achieve when we assess their prior knowledge, build upon their understanding and connect their learning in an authentic and relevant way as we provide multiple opportunities for college and career readiness. We believe that the school environment must be structured, such that clear expectations for student behavior and performance are consistently articulated and reinforced through frequent, transparent feedback that will reestablish our students’ confidence in schools as a place of success. Our goal is to develop critical thinking skills in our students and inspire them to feel a sense of urgency towards making a positive contribution to their community and society.
