I chose South Bronx Classical II for my two children because I wanted them to have the best education. Also, since they’ve been accepted the curriculum has been outstanding over the years. I love the support I get from staff, especially the deans. They treat us like family and my children love going to school to see their teachers. For the past three years, I’ve been part of the SBC II family.
Ms. Armstrong
South Bronx Classical II Parent
I chose this school because it seemed like the best fit for my son, who has always shown an interest in learning. I’ve stuck with this school because as my son has grown and developed, he has been supported and his needs have been met. The teachers and staff have always been extremely knowledgeable, kind, and understanding. I will continue to be invested in this school because it has shown it’s worth the time and dedication.
Ms. Barnes

South Bronx Classical II is an outstanding school. This school provides consistent support, structure, and encouragement towards excellence. Both the educators and administrative staff are there to ensure the students are reaching their highest potential in both self-growth and academic achievement. They are taught the importance of respect and appropriate behavior through example and guidance.
Ms. Rosario
South Bronx Classical II Parent
This school is respected by many parents, such as myself. I have always found the school staff to be both professional and helpful. I believe in their mission and feel that they provide the best educational experience for each student.
