High School Application Program # for incoming 9th graders X19A


Overview

Students of Bronx Collaborative High School are academic detectives, bringing New York City’s unique resources and rich history into the classroom to investigate and solve real-world mysteries. Our teachers connect student teams with community leaders, organizations, and professionals to collaborate on exciting projects.  These real-world experiences of teamwork offer students feedback that prepares them for success with college and career. Teachers and counselors know our families, recognize students’ talents, and support their needs from the first day to graduation. Our students learn to use social media to share ideas that create positive change and encourage social justice.
