Applications are now being accepted from parents looking to enroll their children in a new Montessori Charter School to be located somewhere in the South Bronx.
When it opens, it will be the first Montessori-style elementary school anywhere in the borough.
The New York City Montessori Charter School Board of Trustees will meet on Tuesday, April 5, at 9 a.m. at the law offices of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, 1285 Sixth Ave in Manhattan to confer on details related to the school’s opening.
The school and its partners are now accepting a limited number of seats. Application forms can be downloaded from the website of the South Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation, or SoBRO, www.sobro.org, the Mott Haven-based non-profit that is working alongside the school to develop the project.
Parents interested in securing Kindergarten to 1st grade slots for academic year 2011-2012 at the New York City Montessori Charter School can also ask for application forms from SoBRO’s main office at 555 Bergen Avenue near 149th St. and Third Avenue in Mott Haven, as well as from the F.E.G.S. Office at 412 East 147th Street in Mott Haven.
