On March 2, 2020, the NYS Board of Regents voted to grant the Rosalyn Yalow Charter School a four-year charter renewal. In the past three years only four NYS charters have been awarded a four-year renewal, which is a strong vote of confidence in Yalow’s model and the progress we’ve made, growing from 210 to 510 students.

The Rosalyn Yalow Charter School is a K-8 grade school in District 9 of the Bronx, which opened September 1, 2015 with 211 K-1 students. Now in our fourth year, Yalow serves 437 K-4 students. It honors Nobel Laureate Rosalyn S. Yalow (1921-2011), a physicist and the second American woman to win the Nobel Prize in Medicine (1977). Dr. Yalow was a lifelong Bronx resident, raising two children there, where at the Bronx VA hospital she crafted her Nobel award-winning research in radioimmunoassay, a method initially used to measure insulin in the blood and expanded to cover many substances of biologic interest.
Our hope is that Dr. Yalow’s legacy will inspire a new generation of Bronx children to work hard at their education and strive for success.
