Classical Charter Schools proficiency rates near the top in New York City
On the 2015-2016 state tests, our schools performed among the best in the city, with over twice the proficiency rate as district schools and about five times the proficiency rate of District 12 and District 7, where South Bronx Classical Charter Schools I and II are located, respectively. Importantly, the results above also include 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.

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 in math and ELA, so we use rigorous internal assessments in every subject and every grade to monitor our scholars’ mastery of grade level standards throughout the school. We also measure reading growth in every grade using Fountas & Pinnell running records. Since reading skills are required in nearly every subject, this is one of the most important measures of scholar growth. Additionally, the state offers a science test in 4th grade which helps us ensure our science program is on track.
