Martial Arts Residency
Boys Prep second graders took part in a 10-week Martial Arts residency. The residency provided our scholars with structured physical activity, incorporating discipline and self control.
Circus Arts Residency
This year, Boys Prep Bronx Elementary School launched an exciting partnership with Marquis Studios to provide 1st graders with an amazing Circus Arts program. Each activity allowed the boys to have fun, learn a new skill and also practice our core values.
National Dance Institute Residency
Each year, Boys Prep partners with the National Dance Institute to provide our boys with an exciting 10-week program. This year, Kindergarten students took part and had a wonderful time putting their creative talents to use and also learning new dance moves!
Public Prep and a.i.r. NYC launched an innovative partnership in the fall of 2014 to reduce school absences caused by asthma. a.i.r. NYC has a proven track record of reducing absences related to asthma and hired a full-time Health Educator to work with Public Prep’s four public school campuses in the South Bronx.
The Heath Educator, Sarah Wilkinson, provides tailored lessons for our students, such as a lesson on indoor and outdoor asthma triggers at Boys Prep and a lesson advocating against idling cars at Girls Prep Bronx Middle School.
Asthmatic children also have the opportunity to enroll for free in a.i.r. NYC's home-visit program, which provides up to six sessions per year aimed at reducing asthmatic triggers in the home and encouraging medication compliance. a.i.r. NYC also provides free legal assistance through a partnership with Sullivan & Cromwell LLP, Integrated Pest Management in students’ homes, and referrals to supportive services for families, such as smoking cessation programs.
