Classical Charter Schools proficiency rates near the top in New York City
On the 2013-2014 state tests, our schools performed among the best in the city, with about twice the proficiency rate as district schools and about five times the proficiency rate of District 12, where South Bronx Classical Charter School is located. Importantly, the results above also include District 26, the highest performing Community School District in New York City, and Chappaqua Central School District, the highest performing district in New York State. We compare ourselves to the best so we can be sure our scholars are on track to attend the colleges of their choice, pursue careers and enjoy all the liberties afforded to the educated.
Recipient of 2014 National Blue Ribbon Award
South Bronx Classical Charter School was nationally recognized as an “Exemplary High Performing” school based on national and state assessments over the last five years.
Classical Charter scholars strong across benchmarks
We use a variety of benchmark assessments to measure scholar outcomes. State tests only assess scholars in third grade and up, so we find the Terra Nova (a McGraw Hill standardized test) and DIBELS (Dynamic Indicator of Basic Early Literacy Skills) assessments helpful for assessing scholars in grades K-2. We also measure reading growth in every grade using Fountas & Pinnell running records. Additionally, the state offers a science test in 4th grade which helps us ensure our science program is on track.
