Positive culture and high expectations.
Poor attendance and low levels of academic achievement.
Bronx Collegiate Academy, one of six small schools housed in the Taft Educational Complex, has a positive culture and high expectations for its students, according to the school’s Quality Review. Teachers agree the school is orderly and the principal is an effective manager, according to school surveys.
However, attendance is poor and academic achievement has a long way to go. The school serves many new immigrants and children with special needs.
Admissions: In recent years, the school has had room for all students who apply. (Clara Hemphill, DOE data, August 2018)
