New middle school to allow Bronx charter school to expand

MELROSE -

This fall, students from three Family Life Academy charter schools across the borough will be attending a new middle school.

The schools serve children who are English language learners, according to CEO Marilyn Calo.

The middle school campus will allow the charter school to have one centralized location for students moving up from elementary school and provide the space to expand from 173 students to 416 students.

While all the spots have been filled for the upcoming school year, applications for the lottery system start up again in September.
