Middle School

Carrying Forward Our Values

Recognizing Bronx Arts’ success in improving elementary school student achievement, in 2017 the New York State Board of Regents approved an expansion into a Middle School. The Application For Lottery Enrollment is now open for Bronx Arts Middle School, which will open its doors in Fall 2018 at our bright and spacious campus less than half a mile from the Bronx Arts Elementary school campus.

The Bronx Arts Operating Principles will be the foundation of the middle school as well, they are:

  • Continual Learning:
    Knowledge and its pursuit have both intrinsic and social value.
  • Critical Thinking:
    Sound decisions and judgments are made through questioning, observing, and evaluating information and values.
  • Reflection:
    Learning is maximized by thinking about and reviewing work, evaluating the outcomes of decisions and actions.
  • Effort:
    Initiative, persistence, resourcefulness, and hard work are necessary for success and empowerment.
  • Collaboration:
    Teaching and learning are not isolated endeavors and are enhanced by the participation and contributions of a diverse group of people.
  • Community:
    Human beings are part of social systems that affect and are affected by individuals.
  • Communication:
    Honest listening and expression of knowledge, beliefs, and feelings facilitates positive relationships among community members.

Strong Foundations

Bronx Arts Middle School builds on the Elementary School’s strong foundation by implementing our Middle School method. Our curriculum continues to prioritize and integrate the arts—dance, music, theater and visual arts—into our rigorous academic curriculum for grades 6 through 8.
