I am currently a senior at Bronx Lighthouse College Prep Academy which is the high school part of the charter school. I have been attending this school since 7th grade. In all of 5 years of being at this school, I can truly say that this school has had its ups and downs but I would never regret attending this school. It has taught me a lot about myself and my purpose. I feel like I have added to the school's purpose and name by contributing to its school culture. I love my experience at this school and I would truly recommend anyone to this school.
Bronx Lighthouse Charter School offers very motivational, academic and emotional support from all staff members. Also, a lot of aid in applying to college.
