Bronxdale High School

Overview written by the school: Our school fosters a realistic, relevant, and hands-on educational experience for students. We use collaborative approaches that benefit students by teaching them skills they will need beyond high school, such as the ability to work in teams, solve multi-faceted problems, and apply what they learn in various settings. Our class sizes are approximately 26 students per academic course, and advisory sections have an average of 15 students each. We offer an extended school day to provide structured time, individual attention, and other supports students may need to succeed, and have folded tutoring into the school day. Bronxdale helps each child develop the critical-thinking skills and habits of work necessary for success beyond high school.
