THE BRONX - New York City Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott toured the Bronx Academy of Software Engineering on Crotona Avenue today.

The 120 students at the school take math, English, social studies and science classes, but computer science is also part of the core curriculum.

Students are expected to learn as much as they can about coding and different software to compete against each other during a two-day challenge in March. Walcott says the specialized school is exactly what the Bronx needs.

"The Bronx community has gone crazy over the school,” said Walcott. “We want choices for our children and families and that's what this school represents."
