Bronx Lighthouse Charter School

District: CSD 12
Authorizer: NYC Chancellor
Students at the Bronx Lighthouse Charter School will acquire the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes they need to prepare for college. There will be more time to learn with an 8 hour school day and a 190 day school year. The school will devote extra time to math and literacy. The Arts will serve as a principle teaching tool, supporting and enhancing our school's mission to ensure that our students are literate and competent scholars. Through an emphasis on classic techniques, creative exercises, critiques, gallery-style shows, and appreciation for professional artists from a variety of genres, teachers will engage students in core subjects and leverage their diverse learning styles. The school will feature small class sizes, no more that 22 students in a class, with students and teachers staying together for two years.
