The Vision of Middle School 308, The Bronx Dance Academy, is to teach concepts and content in ways that make learning meaningful and interesting and to encourage students to apply the skills they’ve learned in real-life contexts. Our primary goal is to assist students in becoming self-directed learners who are able to demonstrate, articulate and apply skills they have learned.
We are a school-community that sets and maintains high academic standards and expectations for every child. Teachers will be supported by the administrative team and it is their role to build on prior knowledge, life experience and interest to achieve learning goals for all students. Teacher’s reflect on their teaching practices and actively engage in purposeful learning activities that encourage constructive interaction among students. Teachers at BDA maintain a safe learning environment in which all students are treated fairly and respectfully. We embrace parents as partners and share leadership to enrich our school community. Our goal is for teachers, staff, parents, and students to view themselves as a philosophy provides the foundation for our learning community to grow and succeed.
