South Bronx International Middle School affords newly arrived English Language Learners with a rigorous, college and career preparatory education anchored in a robust literacy curriculum that provides equity and access in our democratic society resulting in a community of learners who have the habits of scholarship to engage with confidence in complex thinking and problem solving across disciplines.
In our student-centered learning community, we pride ourselves on knowing our students well — academically, socially, and emotionally. Students engage in cognitively challenging tasks; reading, writing, speaking and listening in every lesson, and our staff works in teams to use data and mastery grading to guide their instruction and interventions. We provide students with multiple opportunities to showcase their work and learning through student-led conferences, presentations of learning and passage presentations, fostering confidence and presentation skills necessary to thrive in our community.
