A ninth grade student enrolled at the city’s prestigious Bronx High School of Science died in an apparent suicide Tuesday.

The world-famous school’s principal, Jean Donahue, broke the sad news to families in an email sent Tuesday afternoon in which she offered counseling services for students impacted by the girl’s death.

“It is with great sadness that we must inform you of the death of one of our students,” Donahue wrote.

“The student passed away at home this morning,” she added. “We extend our heartfelt sympathy to their family, friends and the entire Bronx Science community.

Bronx Science is renowned for the quality of its academics and graduated more Nobel Prize winners than any public school in the nation.

But the school has grabbed headlines in recent years for criminal hazing on its track team, an illicit student fight club and a Facebook chat group where some students discussed suicide.

Tuesday’s death appeared to be unrelated to those issues.
