At the Charles R. Drew Educational Complex we are committed to providing our students with the academic, intellectual, and character skills that are necessary for success in high school, college, and the competitive world beyond. Our vision is to provide a rigorous, yet supportive learning environment, in which each student has the right to a high quality education. This is accomplished through the guidance and nurturing of a dedicated staff and committed parents who prepare our students to take their places among the future leaders of the nation.
The school offers Compass Learning, a diagnostic prescriptive program designed to provide enrichment and remediation in both reading and math. We also offer foreign language classes (Spanish), Latin, monthly guest speakers, college trips and tours.
The school offers after school programs and Power Saturdays to provide additional academic support in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. In addition, we have a successful chess team which travels to tournaments throughout the country. Our many clubs include dance, technology, basketball, vocal music, yearbook and student government.
The school has a ten-year partnership with Pathways For Youth (A Beacon Program) which provides tutorial, counseling and recreational services to our students and their families. Our partnerships also include Wave Hill, Bronx Community College, New Jersey State University, Urban Park Rangers, Project NOAA, Learning for Life, and PALS.
