About Us

The Bronx Charter School for Children (BCSC) is a K-5 public charter school that is located in the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx.

The Mission of the Bronx Charter School for Children is to empower our children to achieve their greatest potential both as students and as members of their communities.

To realize our Mission, we are guided by these Core Values:

Fostering Academic Excellence

By supporting skilled and dedicated teachers who maintain high academic standards, motivate our students and collaborate with our families

Nurturing the Whole Child

By creating engaged learners, encouraging honesty and guiding social and emotional development

Ensuring a Safe Environment

By promoting mutual respect in our diverse community of students, teachers and families

Developing Critical Thinkers

By encouraging intellectual curiosity and rewarding independent and creative problem solvers

Building Partnerships

By welcoming our families, staff and members of the wider community to participate in and celebrate the successes of our students

The BCSC provides K-5 students with the tools necessary for a lifetime of learning, including a strong foundation of literacy and mathematical skills and opportunities to think critically, research, explore and develop the capability to solve problems. Small class size (24 students per class) and an extended day/extended year program (operating from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., 190 school days per year) positively contribute to the development of a cohesive and supportive school.
