About

We Are a NY Performance Standards Consortium School. This means that you will NOT take four of the required five New York State Regents standardized exams. Instead, you will design and accomplish deep inquiry projects and defend theses in four core subject areas. This is real college preparatory work! We have a diverse population! Bronx Lab Students come from all around the world, with a concentration of students whose families hail from the Caribbean, Africa and Asia. You will learn with and from our diverse community! Advisory is the core of our school. Our advisory classes meet four times a week and stay together for four years with the same teacher. You will join a small family group that will help you navigate high school and beyond! Our Office of Student Support will keep you on track! You will work with a team of highly trained counselors, social workers and high school professionals who focus on your needs and your journey! Our Office of College Placement will get you into college. You will work with full-time college and career counselors to explore post-secondary goals and complete college and scholarship applications. You will go on college trips, take part in lock-in events to complete applications, and experience March Madness, a month-long push to learn about, apply and be accepted to your choice of college! You will become a student leader! You will connect with the Student Voice Committee, be mentored by older students in our Peer Group Connection classes, learn about your career choices in our Real World Learning classes and take part in Peer Mediations. Your classmates will include performers, thinkers, activists and athletes. Bronx Lab School students are our greatest asset and our greatest pride and joy!.

We have courses that help our ninth and tenth graders explore their career interests and develop readiness skills. Our students can apply for apprenticeships in tech, finance, and business, which allows them to earn and learn while in high school.
