We hope this video will give you some sense of what makes Bronx Science unique and will help prospective students and their families picture what the school is all about. Also on the Admissions page link is a form for current 8th graders to ask a question to Bronx Science students. 8th graders can usethis formto enter their questions and Bronx Science students will get back to them. We encourage the student to be the one to ask the questions. Please give our students a few days to respond. And prospective parents/guardians can ask questions of Bronx Science parents through theParents' Association. If you have any questions, please contact our parent coordinator, Ms. Golangolanc@bxscience.edu
