“Maslow before Bloom" It is our belief at BHS that when we’re able to combine social, emotional, affective, and cognitive development together, we are creating many more interconnections in the developing brain that enable students to accelerate learning and development.
Bronx Health Sciences High School (BHS) is a safe, friendly, multicultural learning environment whose doors are open to high school students from around the world or “around the block.” BHS provides students with learning opportunities through creative, rigorous, engaging and supportive instruction.
