Grades are in for Bronx schools

The New York State Education Department has released the 2008-09 report cards for city schools today, recognizing the success of several Bronx schools.

Among the local schools singled out as high-performing or rapidly improving are the Bronx Charter School for Excellence, the Bronx Charter School for the Arts, the Bronx Lighthouse Charter School and the Bronx Prep Charter School.

Public schools and districts were graded on student performance in English, language arts, math and science. The report also allows the public to see how school funding is being used and graduation rates.
