The Bronx Center for Science and Mathematics is a partnership between parents, students, teachers, and staff to provide the best possible education for our students. In order to achieve our ambitious goals of providing ALL of our students the opportunity to attend a college or university, we must all make a commitment to work together.
Students are expected to understand the BCSM Seven Core Virtues, and live up to them every day.
I will Respect my classmates, teachers, school property, and myself. My teachers hold the keys to my future; I will always treat them with special respect. I will do what is asked of me to perform a task. I also know that my classmates are my teammates; I will never purposely disrespect, disappoint, nor let them down.
I will demonstrate Integrity by always being honest through my actions towards my self, my family, friends, teachers, and community.
I will show respect towards and bestow Honor upon my family, friends, teachers, my school and my community by always putting forth my best effort and striving for excellence. I will honor the core virtues & traditions of the school.
I will strive for Excellence in every subject class by producing top quality work. I will complete my homework every night, be an active participant in class discussions and prepare for assessments with due diligence. I will demonstrate greatness, perfection, and superiority in everything that I do and represent.
I will make the Commitment to my studies and realize that by doing so I will leave this school prepared to meet the challenges of college and the global work force. I pledge to personal growth and the achievement of academic excellence.
I realize that the work will be challenging, but I when it gets overwhelming and I get frustrated I will continue to Persevere and not give up. I will seek out the academic and/or emotional support from my advisor at BCSM.
I will partake in 300 community Service hours and help bring the BCSM values to the local, national, and global community.
Our students understand that BCSM’s standards for academics and behavior are very high and that there will be consequences if they do not live up to the Seven Core Virtues. If students fail to honor any one of the values, they will take responsibility for their actions, try to learn from their mistakes and will work to become better students, better citizens, and better people.
