The Bronx High School of Science was founded in 1938 by resolution of the Department of Education of the City of New York with Dr. 莫里斯迈斯特 as the first principal of the school. The school was housed in a Gothic building located at Creston Avenue and 184th Street. 建筑, built in 1918 for Evander Childs High School, was previously occupied by Walton High School (1930) and by an annex of DeWitt Clinton High School (1935). Bronx Science started with 150 ninth grade students and 250 tenth grade students, the remaining facilities were used by DeWitt Clinton. As Bronx Science became larger, the Clinton contingent was gradually returned to its main building. During their joint occupation, 持续了两年, the two schools had separate teaching staff and classes, but the same supervision and administration.
In 1946, as a result of the efforts of Dr. 迈斯特, our faculty, our 父母’ Association, the school became co-ed. 从一开始, a campaign for a new building was initiated by the 父母’ Association and sparked by the tireless dedication of Dr. 迈斯特. 1958年2月，他在哈佛大学攻读博士学位. 莫里斯迈斯特, after twenty years as the principal of the school, resigned to become the first president of the newly organized Bronx Community College. Dr. Alexander Taffel succeeded Dr. 迈斯特作为主要.
在博士. Taffel's guidance, the plans for a new building and for its equipment were completed. Finally, on March 3rd, 1959, our students and faculty occupied the new building for the first time. They entered a school equipped with the most modern facilities and laboratories for carrying out its program. The problem of moving the library books from the old building to the new was solved in typical Bronx Science manner. 星期五下午, each student took home five library books from the old library and on Monday returned them to the new library.
