Classical Charter Schools are high-performing public charter schools in the South Bronx. We maintain an uncompromising but purposeful structure that liberates teachers and scholars from distraction, transforming the classroom into an environment sharply focused on learning. Despite serving students typically deemed ‘at-risk,’ we consistently outperform over 90% of New York schools and won the National Blue Ribbon Award for Exemplary High Performance in 2014. Founded in 2006, South Bronx Classical I serves Kindergarten to eighth grade. South Bronx Classical II and III opened in 2013 and 2015 and will grow one grade each year through eighth grade. We seek mission-driven professionals as we broaden our impact across the city. Classical plans to open an additional two schools in the next three years.
