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. We develop our students’ technological abilities; we train them as media producers who can investigate and evaluate evidence, and share their own innovative ideas beyond the school’s doors. Our courses tap into the same natural learning process that we all first learn to walk, talk, and play complex games--we learn by doing.

Students learn to work in teams, accept feedback from experts, and meet real-world standards, which prepare them for university and job experiences. Our collaborations with government, community-based organizations, cultural institutions, educational programs, and outside professionals enrich our classes, offer field trips and provide resources.

BxCHS faculty know our families, recognize each student’s myriad talents, and support their unique needs from the first day of school to graduation. Our counselors and social workers support families and help make college acceptance and attendance a reality for our students. 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

Performance Based Assessment Tasks (PBATs)
By state approval, we replace Regents Exams with a portfolio requirement-- college-level written papers and oral defense panels Students graduate with the skills to research, write, and defend their ideas.

Student Choice & Voice
Like a university we allow students to select their courses from a menu of department offerings with the support of their “advisor.” Freshman have an Introduction to Critical Thinking CORE program during their first half-year. Clubs and student govenrment have prominent roles in the school.

Real World as Classroom
We investigate New York City to study real world issues. Teachers take trips through the Bronx and other 4 boroughs for academic explorations. We visit upstate New York and Washington, D.C. during key units of study.

Faculty Model Social & Emotional Learning
We hand-pick faculty and support them in being student-centered. They advise a group of 16 students and communicate with home via internet, phone calls, and texts. Teachers collaborate and practice the same skills they ask of students.

College For All
All students complete a Senior Internship in a field of interest, college visits, special program oportunities, and a two-year College Bound Seminar to support students and families through the college process.

Extra Curricular Activities

Campus Sports
Over 30+ funded PSAL teams provide the campus with a range of sports in Fall, Winter, and Spring seasons. The Montefiore Children’s Hospital on-site clinic can assist with students’ free physical exams. The campus football field, baseball/softball field, soccer field, 8-lane track, and indoor swimming pool provide plenty of opportunity for phys-ed class training, team practices, recreational activities, and regulation PSAL games.

Technology & Digital Media @ Bronx Collab
