Students learn to use their voice and stand up for what’s right. In performing arts class students develop speaking skills and presence, in academic classes students debate with their peers, and at all times scholars take pride in the success of their school.


Every BOLD student has his or her own laptop to use throughout the day. Teachers prepare students for careers of the future by incorporating technology skills into their teaching and meeting the needs of individual learners through computer learning programs.


BOLD leaders aren’t just brilliant and hardworking, they’re dedicated to giving back to their community. Our students participate in service learning experiences and extracurricular activities that stress helping others within Newark. They also learn more about their hometown through our partnerships with NJPAC and NJSO.


Though we focus on character, our students also receive an education that prepares them for college and beyond. With 77% of our 8th graders matriculating to college, we have created support structures to make sure they get the rest of the way through.
