Welcome Message from our Parent Coordinator

Happy Holidays!

My name is Jamilex Peña, and I am the new Parent Coordinator at Bronx Design & Construction Academy. As a Bronx native, I am excited to join this thriving school community. I am here to support parents and families in strengthening their relationship with the school, and provide resources where needed. 

Over the years, I have developed a strong commitment to enhancing parent engagement in the schools I’ve worked at in the past. As a parent myself, I understand the desire to want to afford the best opportunities for children. I am here to help, and in the new year, I look forward to meeting you. 

Below, you will find my contact information. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. When we return from Winter Recess, I will share an updated Parent Association meeting schedule. Until then, have an amazing holiday season.

NYC Schools Account (NYCSA)

Did you know that you can track your child’s education on any computer, phone, or tablet? The NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) is an app that lets you see your student’s grades, attendance, fitness results, schedule, and more from anywhere and in all DOE languages: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, English, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Urdu. 


Once you enroll, you have to add students to the account in order to see more detailed information. Once you have done this, you can enjoy all the benefits your NYC Schools Account provides, including access to your child’s:

  • Grades
  • Test scores
  • Attendance
  • Transportation information
  • Reading level
  • Progress towards graduation
  • Schedule
  • Health
  • Enrollment history, and more!


If you have any trouble accessing your account, please email our Parent Coordinator, Ms. Wallen (nwallen@bxdesign.org).

Message from Principal Pulphus

Dear Parents,

Thank you for being a part of our school community.

I am committed to creating a safe space for not only your children, but for you as well. I hope you seek Bronx Design to assist in connecting you to resources you may need now or in the future. If you have any suggestions on what we can do to improve how we show up for our families, please do not hesitate to share feedback via email, in-person, surveys, and during remote meetings. Together, we will ensure your son/daughter takes part in the best high school learning experience New York City has to offer. Again, thank you for being a member of our school community.
