The Bronx Charter School For Children
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
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.
