Dear Scholars:


On behalf of the Mathematics Department, we are proud to welcome students to the BCSM community.  We have high aspirations for our students, with the goal of having them prepared for college-level work while still in high school.

The name The Bronx Center for Science & Mathematics says it all. Mathematics is a vital component of secondary education that will help prepare students to compete on the collegiate level. Mathematics will be at the core of student’s learning at BCSM, and students will be expected to work hard to challenge themselves to achieve their maximum capabilities. Our coursework and methods are designed to help students expand computational skills, but most importantly to develop conceptual and problem-solving abilities. Natural ability is not what matters – it is student’s dedication to learning for continuous improvement that will enable them to succeed in high school mathematics.

Each student at BCSM will be given a customized mathematics program for his or her four years. We offer our students the following courses:

  • Algebra
  • Geometry
  • Trigonometry
  • Pre-Calculus
  • AP Calculus
  • Mathematics Electives


Within each math subject, BCSM provides a sequence tailored to the students’ ability and motivation. BCSM students should expect to have four years of mathematics instruction, which exceeds NY State requirements because we want our students to be prepared for college level mathematics.

We expect the utmost commitment to education and for students to take pride in their work. In return, we will provide all students with an abundance of energy, resources, knowledge, and support. We will be available for extra help, particularly in after-school tutoring sessions.  We look forward to our upcoming year together, full of intense mathematical training, exploration, hard work, and…fun!
