Earl Monroe New Renaissance School – a brand-new charter school in the Pelham Bay section of the Bronx, has a curriculum built entirely around basketball.
"That's where there passion lies, and we're using that as a springboard for all the things that are connected to the sport,” says Sharisse Grimes, the school's academic director. “It's more than just playing the game, it's what can I do with these skills?"
The school will have 25 elective course including business management, nutrition, sports management and journalism.
