Support Our Vision of Educating the Whole Child
Bronx Borough President Rueben Diaz, Jr. declared April 30, 2018 Yalow Yalow Tigers Chess Day for beating the best private and public schools in the state and Canada and winning the 2018 New York State Chess Championships in two divisions. Yes the Bronx! Go Tigers!
25% of Yalow’s 29 Kindergarden-3-grade championship chess team were English Language learners, 10% had individualized education programs (IEPs).
Yalow is a federal Title-IV school, with 95% students eligible for free- or reduced-price lunches—a key measure of economic disadvantage. All students are admitted by lottery.
