The Carol and Frank Biondi Education Center
We make school a positive experience for students.
Students with learning disabilities and/or emotional disorders are surrounded with the academic and therapeutic support they need. Parents who send their children to Biondi can take pride in their child’s academic and emotional growth and feel confident that they’ve made the right choice for their child.
We transform students
We serve students K-12 whose ability to learn is impacted by behavioral and emotional challenges, and/or learning disabilities. We keep our classes small and give each student the individual attention and encouragement that he or she needs to be successful in school.
The Biondi Education Center is a state-approved 853 New York State Education Department-accredited, year-round special education school, with two locations: Biondi Elementary School in The Bronx and Biondi Middle and High School in Yonkers just past the Bronx border.
I wish I knew about Biondi earlier. We had to home school our son because his behavior was so bad. But once we got him to Biondi, he made ‘Student of the Month’ twice! We couldn’t believe it!
When I came to Biondi Elementary School in fifth grade, I couldn’t read. In one year, I could read. From that day on, I told myself that I could do anything!
My son still couldn’t read in the second grade. At Biondi, he began to recognize letters by the middle of third grade. Now he reads everything he sees! He reads to me every night.
The Biondi School is part of Rising Ground, one of New York’s largest and most respected nonprofit human services organizations. Rising Ground has received the prestigious Gold Award for Nonprofit Excellence.
