Recent math test results coming out of a charter school in the south Bronx have been off the charts!

Success Academy Bronx 1, located at 339 Morris Avenue, within the Paul Robeson School Complex, has shown excellence and achievement with their most recent test scores in math.

The math test score results have resulted in Success Academy Bronx 1, which includes both elementary and middle school, being ranked as the number five school out of all 3,500 schools in New York state.

In addition, the fourth graders at Success Academy Bronx 1 achieved a 100% pass rate in math, along with just ten other grades from other schools in New York state.

On average, Success Academy Bronx 1 achieved a pass rate of 99.3% in math overall.

Success Academy Bronx 3, located at 968 Cauldwell Avenue, achieved a 96.6% pass rate in math, and was ranked at number 15 on the statewide list of schools.

“I am incredibly proud of Success Academy’s hard-working and talented educators and our scholars, who have pushed themselves to new heights of understanding, and our parents who make sure they never give up,” said Eva Moskowitz, founder of Success Academy.

“We must continue our work with even greater urgency, as there are almost 17,000 students on the Success Academy waiting list and our city’s immense education suffering is fundamentally unjust.”

“Our teachers and staff work incredibly hard to make Success Academy Bronx 1 a place where kids love to be every day, our scholars work equally hard to grow as deep, independent thinkers, and our amazing parents support us every step of the way,” said Elizabeth Vandlik, Success Academy Bronx 1 principal. “I’m so proud of the efforts of our community and thrilled to be starting another year with our Bronx 1 family!”

The other four schools, who rounded out the top five schools statewide in math, all of which are Success Academy schools, include SA Fort Greene, SA Crown Heights, SA Hell’s Kitchen and SA Bed-Stuy.

Success Academy Charter Schools was founded in 2006 and is the largest and highest-performing free, public charter school network in New York City. Success Academy serves 14,000 students out of 41 operated schools citywide.
