Message From Our Principal
Dear Bronx Legacy HS Founders:
“We are the ones that we’ve been waiting for.” - June Jordan
We are deeply honored that you chose to begin the journey into your adolescence as a founding member of Bronx Legacy High School. While we may be experiencing challenging times in our community, the country, and the world, we are a community that will overcome it together. Recent events have reminded us of why our mission at Bronx Legacy is all the more important. As our Founders, you will be a part of bringing this mission to life. You are all smart, strong, resilient, and capable, but even more exciting is the untapped potential that each of you will bring to our community. You will be celebrated for your individuality and creativity, and recognized for everything that makes you...YOU. Your voice is important, you matter, you belong. As we officially prepare to open the doors to welcome you into our new community, we would like to hear from you. We will soon reach out to learn more about how you envision your high school experience.
Our promise to you is that we will provide you with an experience unlike anything you have experienced before. In collaboration with your teachers and community allies, we will bring you an approach that pushes your thinking about what school is and could be, and immerse you in activities that give you a new sense of purpose. We believe the best preparation for the real world is the real world and our five challenge areas, Applied Academics, Internships, Service Learning, Wilderness and Presentation, will engage your mind, spark your curiosity and extend your ambition beyond what you have ever imagined. We are problem solvers and change agents that will disrupt injustices, and we are connectors that will bring people together for common causes of justice. I am so excited to watch as you spread your wings and show the world the promise of The Bronx.
This is our Moment. This is the X. This is Bronx Legacy High School.
With Hope & Love,
Kam Gordon, Principal
