 Bronx High School of Science
Open House for 7th Grade Students and their Parents/Guardians
 
Bronx Science would like to invite 7th grade students to the Spring Open House, which will be held on Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015.  

The tour is self-guided so students and parents/guardians can come anytime between the hours of 5:00 - 7:00pm and they can feel free to stay as long as they like.

Students and parents/guardians will be able to talk to students, parents, teachers and administrators and learn about the Bronx Science experience.  They will be able to create a self-guided tour of the school, which will enable them to visit demonstrations in every department.  The presentations will be given throughout the evening so they can come anytime before 7:00pm and drop into any class for as long as they wish.

Instructional Focus (for parents)


An instructional focus is a school-determined priority for learning. The goal of the instructional focus is to strengthen student achievement. It is based on the school’s needs and has a direct influence on the teaching that occurs within the classroom. We developed an instructional focus that integrates our beliefs on how students learn best, responds to the needs of all students, and pays attention to the professional growth of all staff.  Throughout the school year, teacher teams will meet to reflect on implementation and student learning. This reflection will inform adjustments to teaching practice, in relation to increasing student progress. Ours is below: 


The PS/MS 219 2014-2015 School-Wide Instructional Focus:


Students will demonstrate cognitive engagement through writing tasks that require reflection and goal setting.

 

Chancellor’s Instructional Expectations (CIE)

The CIE asks schools to identify a school-wide instructional focus. It is important for us to use the goal setting process as an opportunity to prioritize improving classroom practice across the school.

Expectativas de instrucción del Canciller (CIE)
