Many graduates go on to higher education

The Downside

Already crowded, school faces addition of charter school.

Arturo A Schomburg Satellite Academy is a transfer high school for students who need a smaller school and more attention than most high schools provide. To be eligible, students must have attended a different high school for at least a year and be 15 to 17 years old. Formerly part of a group of 3 schools, Schomburg is now on its own with its own principal. It shares a building with Bronx Regional High School, a full-time GED program and childcare, medical and student-referral centers. Recently the Department of Education announced plans to house an additional school in the building - Roads Charter School 2  but Schomburg students fear it will strain the already crowded facilities.
