Internships at Bronx hospitals
Poor attendance, low graduation rate
Bronx Career and College Preparatory High School aims to blend academics with real-life experiences to prepare students for college and the world of work. Students may have internships at Montefiore and Jacobi hospitals, according to the school’s yearly plan. Professionals visit the school to describe their careers to children, such as during the "speed mentoring" event shown in the photo above [NYCFC Facebook photo]. Teachers responding to school surveys say the principal, Julia Baly, is an effective manager.
However, this small school suffers from poor attendance and a low graduation rate. The quality of teaching, while improving, is uneven, according to the school’s Quality Review.
The school shares a former middle school building with Bronx Latin and the Dr. Richard Izquierdo Health and Science Charter School.
Admissions: The school admits students according to the educational option formula designed to ensure a mix of students of different abilities. In recent years it has not filled its seats. (Clara Hemphill, web reports, May 2018)

Career planning helps students to determine the classes and internship needed towards a career goal. All students are expected to challenge themselves with a minimum of at least one AP course prior to graduation. There is an expectation that our students give back to their community through various community service opportunities throughout the school year.
