Grand Concourse Academy Charter School Ratings & Reviews

GCA is a very intensive school. When my kids started kindergarten, they only knew the alphabet. However, by the end of the school year, they were able to write and read. I appreciate all the work done by the staff and the patience that they have with the kids. Thank you Mr Victor for keeping the kids safe amd in a good environment.

Firstly, I cannot express the words that GCA means to our family. They are in the no longer on Grand Concourse and are located in the Throggs Neck area of the Bronx, and that is how we found them, and are we glad that we did. It basically is a hidden gem. If you look at their test scores, GCA is better than most, if not all, in the area and the state. People pay tens of thousands of dollars to get a school with these ratings. My two kindergartners started the year with basic alphabet and some very basic writing ability, and now after K graduation they are reading at a 2nd grade level and writing paragraphs. They now read me bedtime stories. The teachers are amazing, and they ensure that the kids that are excelling continue to learn past their level. Mr. Victor and Ms. Howard are amazing leaders of the school and they know all the students. They ensure that everyone is learning, foster a protective environment and love seeing all the kids do well. As parents, we are always aware of any issues and any of the faculty is very easy to get into contact with. The school day runs from 8:00 to about 4:00 and partly one of the reasons the kids are so far ahead of their peers that attended public schools in the area. Again, we cannot express enough our gratitude for finding GCA and hope that your experience is as great as ours.

All 3 of my kids attend this amazing school..My son first started in Kindergarten and then my oldest followed 2 years later...She was struggling with her academics in the public school she was going to,so when she came to G.C.A she was a little behind.I was worried nonetheless due to the great teachers and my cooperation we got her up to speed.I was so happy.As of last year my third child started and they all love it.The staff knows me well and they are very very attentive to your child's needs.. I will miss them when all my kids leave there and I hope to find one just as Awesome as them..

My son has been in this school for 1st and 2nd grades now. Its a great school. Small class rooms, 2 teachers in the class. Swimming program for all 2nd graders. They have music, spanish, art, perform concerts. Fun Fridays are incorporated for the children to celebrate different things. They have bus service, a long school day 7:40am breakfast, 8am-4pm school day and after school up till 5:30. They are looking to expand past 5th grade. They have lots of educational trips during the year. My son has had excellent teachers who really care and push for him to utilize his full potentials. The school communicates with parents, I love that. Unlike public school where your child enters the building and that's it, your not allowed in, and sometimes even meeting the principal is impossible. I have no complaints about this school. They're great, the staff is great, my child is happy here and so am I.
