Who We Are:

The Bronx Studio School for Writers and Artists (BSSWA) was founded in September 2004 in the Hunts Point-Longwood section of the South Bronx by a fierce collective of teachers, families, and partners. Under no circumstances shall we accept a student’s past academic history, emotional challenges, or socio-economic status as an excuse not to meet our collective mission to cultivate generations of community-based, college bound, scholar-activists committed to leading wide-awake, literacy-rich lives and improving the quality of the world around them.

Community School Forum BBQ!

Join us for our Annual Community School Forum which will take place this year on June 4th, 2024, at 6pm at BSSWA. This forum is a way for families to receive data from this school year, be provided information on some of the resources that are currently being offered to all families, and to give us feedback on things that you would like to see be brought into our school to better serve our families in our community. During the event, families will also be able to enjoy food, engage in student led activities, enter in a raffle for prizes, and also receive food pantry bags from our partnership with NY Common Pantry while supplies last. Come out and learn what it means to be a community school.
