Bronx Community Charter School :: Our Community

Bronx Community Charter School is currently located in the Norwood neighborhood of the Bronx. The median income for the area is $24,000 and 33% of households are living in poverty, but there is a great richness in the ethnic and cultural life of the community.

Our families identify as 41% Latino, 31% African-American, 5% African, 6% White, 4% Asian, and 13% Multi-Racial. Our students speak ten home languages, including Spanish, Turkish, Arabic, Bengali, Urdu, Korean, Hausa, Wolof, and Twi. 83% of our students receive free or reduced priced lunch.
