New small high schools across BX, city aren?t getting straight A's

The new small high schools operating across the Bronx and the city aren?t getting straight A?s.

A study supplied to the New York Times by a critic of the city?s public school system looked at New Century High Schools. It found that students aren?t benefiting from partnerships with community organizations, which is considered to be one of the hallmarks of the smaller schools.

The critic also says the schools attract the best students. This leaves the lower performing students in the larger high schools, where they are not getting the attention they need.

The study was commissioned by New Visions for Public Schools, a non-profit organization that has been working with the city on creating the smaller high schools. New Visions says it plans to work on the issues named in the study.
