The Grand Concourse Academy Charter School is a top performing K-8 public charter school in the Bronx, with over 19 years of experience.
The fundamental belief at the Academy is that all childrencan learn. All children have the right to attend school in which they can progress and receive education. They shall have a real opportunity to learn equally rigorous content.
We hold our school accountable to the same standards as those of the highest performing schools in our state.
The Academy encourages teachers to engage in “performance-based” instruction, so that our students learn both the basics and the higher-level skills they will need after graduation.
Performance-based classes are more difficult to design and teach than the lecture approach, but they help children learn better and become excited about learning. Children learn by doing. Students are required to prove, through their projects and presentations, that they have mastered knowledge and skills in language arts, social studies, mathematics, and science.
