New York City's Smaller Schools Movement: Bronx Lab School, New York City Public Schools
Schachter, Ron
District Administration, v45 n6 p18-19 Jun-Jul 2009
This article profiles the 5-year-old Bronx Lab School, a shining achievement in Chancellor Joel Klein's aggressive program of creating new, small schools, almost 400 of which have opened over the past seven years. It's unprecedented anywhere in America. Bronx Lab--which shares the building with similarly sized schools focused on areas such as computers, technology and aerospace--defines itself as one of the city's college prep schools, and although 81 percent of the student body falls under Title I, 95 percent graduated in 2008, and 83 percent entered college.
