Our School Mission

Students of Bronx Collaborative High School (BxCHS) are academic detectives, bringing New York City’s unique resources and rich history into the classroom to investigate real-world challenges. Our students produce technology and multimedia; trained to express their voices, critically evaluate evidence, and share their own innovative ideas beyond the school’s doors.

Our learning is challenging and fun. Our courses tap into students’ natural curiousity. Students learn new topics by experimenting under the guidance of teachers; they learn by doing meaningful tasks. Students work in teams, accept feedback from experts, and meet real-world expectations to prepare them for university and job experiences.

Our collaborations with scholars, government, community-based organizations, cultural institutions, educational programs, and outside professionals enrich our classes, offer field trips and provide resources.

We recognize each family and student as having individual needs for support. We encourage students to develop their myriad talents. Our counseling and guidance team support families from admission to graduation to make college attendance and success a reality. We prize individuality, diversity, and authenticity--working together to address issues of social justice and to create positive change in the world.

Key Program Features


Bronx Collaborative students with strong ELA performance can take free college classes at Lehman College for college credit. All students and parents receive comprehensive college counseling and special courses, fairs, and college visit opportunities. Bronx Collaborative classes are all 90-minutes long and meet every other day-- like college.

Mandatory Senior Internships offer all students academic credit and valuable hands-on real world career experience.

By state approval, we replace Regents Exams with a portfolio requirement-- college-level written papers and one hour oral defense panels before a committee of teachers, parents, and students. All of our graduates demonstrate the skills to research, write, and defend their ideas on a college level.

Students select their courses from a menu of department offerings (like college) with the support of their “advisor.” Freshman have an Introduction to Critical Thinking CORE program during their first half-year.

Our faculty are hand-picked to support student-centered learning. Teachers receive training as Advisors and communicate with parents and the 16 students they advise. Teachers work with students on social justice issues through community circles each week and resolve conflicts creatively through restorative circles, conversations, and conferencing.

Our administrative team brings over 35 years as Dept of Education school leaders, as well as experience teaching language arts, history, technology, math, Spanish, and science.


All classes require students to work on complex projects requiring planning, writing, editing, and presenting. Students are graded on their “mastery” of the key concepts of the course and the skills and content teachers identify as college-ready understandings.

Our campus’ three schools play together successfully on over 30 winning PSAL teams in Fall, Winter, and Spring. Our massive campus has many fields, a swimming pool, and an 8-land track.

GIRLS TEAMS- Basketball; Cross Country; Gymnastics; Handball; Indoor Track; Outdoor Track; Soccer; Softball; Swimming; Tennis; Volleyball

BOYS TEAMS- Baseball; Basketball; Bowling; Football; Gymnastics; Indoor Track; Outdoor Track; Soccer; Swimming; Tennis; Volleyball; Wrestling

A new iMac technology lab, and mobile labs (iPads, iPad Mini, and Laptops) allow all teachers to teach with technology. All students have free school email addresses and Google apps to support collaboration and structured social media skills.

We have a full-time paid counselor and counseling interns from New York University. We offer the Prodigy Project for struggling students and family counseling as a free service for interested families.

We have graduated over 21 classes to colleges and universities around the city and nation, including Ivy League schools at our sister school and bring this record of success to our new big campus in the north Bronx.
