The Rafael Hernandez Dual Language Magnet School’s philosophy is to empower students with a purposeful education and appropriate skills for an increasingly diverse, technological, multilingual and multicultural society. The education of each student is a cooperative effort among staff, children, parents and the community at large. Together, we will nurture the social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth of students, so that they can surpass academic standards and be caring and productive citizens involved in a world community that respects linguistic and cultural diversity.
We work in collaboration with WHEDCO, a community agency, that provides a variety of academic and extra-curricular activities after school and during the summer. We also work very closely with various arts organizations, e.g. Bronx Arts Ensemble and LEAP, who provide services to our school community.
