Our Insights

What’s Special

Students put on plays and musicals

The Downside

Poor academic performance

The Bronx Theatre High School, which shares the John F. Kennedy Campus with other small schools, has classes in costume design, studio art, acting, and playwriting, according to the high school directory. Students put on plays and musicals, including a production of A Raisin in the Sun.

The school was founded in 2003 with the support of The Roundabout Theatre Company.  

Most of the students enter with low levels of skills. Attendance is poor and the graduation rate is below the citywide average.

Admissions: Students are admitted according to the Educational Option designed to ensure a mix of low- and high-performing students.  (Saba Sebhatu, web reports and DOE data, October 2018)
