While battling the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual stress of a global pandemic, the 11th grade scholars at South Bronx Community Charter High School participated in a Mental Health Interdisciplinary Project (MHIP). The MHIP challenged scholars to focus on a mental health disorder and develop a creative project to display that will showcase the important elements of the disorder. Scholars created podcasts, comic strips, magazines, posters and much more to increase awareness of their mental health disorder. Check them out! Also follow us on Instagram for daily mental health posts.

Project KickOff

For each Grade Level Interdisciplinary Project at South Bronx Community Charter High School, we have a kick off challenge. The kickoff challenge is geared toward boosting excitement and providing any preliminary content knowledge that scholars will need to know to complete the challenges moving forward; it’s the introduction to the project! This year, scholars participated in virtual scavenger hunt from home, where they answered some hard questions and gave some compelling testimonies.
