The Downside

Academic achievement has a ways to go

The South Bronx Academy of Applied Media, opened in fall 2005, is one of two small middle schools housed in IS 184, which was closed because of low academic performance.

Students, called "scholars," wear uniforms of light blue shirts and gray trousers and begin the day reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and the Scholars' Pledge, written especially for the school to motivate and inspire students. Roshone Ault-Lee has been principal since the school’s founding.

The other middle school in the building is the Academy of Public Relations.

Admissions: Students are admitted according to the District 7 "school choice" application. (Clara Hemphill, web reports, May 2019)
