Mission Statement

In an effort to represent the community’s prestige, the South Bronx Charter School for International Cultures and the Arts is a model of excellence providing its youngster with a constructivist and child-centered curriculum. Our intellectually challenging and standards based curriculum is enriched by our international perspective, the arts, and our dual language program. Our students receive a well-rounded education that uses the arts to promote excellence in all areas: cognitive, social, emotional, and moral. Our school meets or exceeds New York State Learning Standards, aligns student learning to those standards and supports teachers with professional development opportunities. Our community, our parents, and staff are empowered to participate meaningfully in our school to strengthen its potential for success.

Instructional Description

Curriculum at SBCSICA incorporates a constructivist model of education and New York State Common Core Standards in a dual language program. Our approach emphasizes inquiry based teaching strategies that are rigorous and include higher order thinking and reflect the importance of educating the whole child inclusive of their emotional, social, physical and intellectual needs. Curriculum is designed to foster curiosity and initiative, creativity and problem solving in a collaborative setting where children can explore ideas and materials that are interesting and connect to their world. These features will also help children develop the knowledge, respect and understanding of diverse cultures and maximize their opportunities for success in school and beyond.
