The International Leadership Charter High School is a tuition free institution that aims to prepare the young men and women of the Bronx not just for the demands of higher education, but for leading lives of meaning. Since we see our students as future leaders in all sectors, our teaching philosophy provides students with powerful learning experiences that stress engagement, discovery, and the active application of learning to the world around us; our students come to us with a desire to learn, and we instill in them the knowledge and confidence to seek answers.
Our goals call for an academically rigorous program aligned New York Annual Yearly Progress requirements. The ILCHS five year goals are as follows:
- ILCHS shall meet AYP requirements in ELA, Mathematics and Science as measured by the NYS Regents examinations.
- 90% of students who seat for regents exams in ELA, Mathematics and Science will have a 30% higher pass rate on the NYS Regents Examinations than high schools in the community school district in which they are located.
- 90% students enrolled continuously at ILCHS from grades 9 through 12 will graduate within 4 years.
- 90% or more of the ILCHS students will achieve an average daily attendance of 85% or better.
