THE BRONX - Parents are criticizing the new location for a Bronx charter school, saying the large amount of traffic makes it too dangerous for the children.

The new location for the South Bronx Charter School for the International Cultures and the Arts will be at East 133rd Street and Bruckner Boulevard, near a spot that feeds in and out of the Bruckner Expressway. Parents say having the school at a busy intersection is hazardous, especially since it's near a highway. They're also concerned more congestion will be created by parents dropping kids off by car.

The school says, "The safety of our students, teachers and visitors is paramount," and adds it will be working with the Department of Transportation to conduct traffic studies and install appropriate control devices if needed.

The new school is scheduled to open in the fall.
