If your child is in the 8th grade, then it's time that you started looking at high schools. Unlike grammar schools, which are often located near your home, high schools are not as densely clustered around the city. However, for parents who live in the Bronx, you have a whole lot of options. Below are three choices. There is an all-girls school, an all-boys school, and a co-educational school.
Fordham Prep is located on the grounds of Fordham University Rose Hill campus. It is an all-boys school. The school is run by members of the Jesuits. The school was founded in 1841. While the high school does utilize the University's campus (particularly the large church) for some events, the high school has its own gymnasium, track, and large theater. The school has a classical curriculum, including Greek and Latin. Many of the teachers are Jesuits, though there is a lay staff that also works in the school. The school is located right next to the Botanical Garden Metro North stop, and there are also many bus stops on Fordham Road. These buses can take you west toward Kingsbridge and Riverdale and east toward Morris Park and Soundview.
St. Catherine's is an all-girls school located in the Williamsbridge section of the Bronx. The school was originally opened in Washington Heights but was moved in order to accommodate the large number of students. The school is run by The Sisters of Mercy, which is an order that was formed in Ireland. The school has a large campus, and there is a focus on sports and academics. The school has volleyball, basketball, and soccer. There is also a strong focus on college prep, and during the spring there will be college fairs at which students can meet with college reps.
Cardinal Spellman is a co-educational school located in the Tremont section of the Bronx. It was created in the late 1950s and was one of the first catholic schools to be co-educational. The school has a very impressive sports program, with track, football, volleyball, lacrosse, baseball, and many other offerings. The school also has a strong academic program, with many students going on to college. One notable alumna is Sonia Sotomayor. The school is located in the Edenwald section of the south Bronx, and it's close to Seton Hall park, which is one of the nicer parks in the area and gives the location a lot of green space. There are buses right on Baychester Avenue, which is the main street that runs through the neighborhood.

Hi there, my name is Kirby. Welcome. I am here to talk to you about educational software. I want to help you learn how to teach students using targeted software programs. The programs may share math and language concepts in a way that facilitates quick learning. The programs are usually broken down into sections that allow learners to pick up the concepts quickly and efficiently. I will use this site to talk about the various types of software you can use in an educational environment. I will also talk about ways to help students adapt to using software programs to learn new subjects.
