Success Academy officials said the city’s largest charter school network outgrew previous rally venues, including the City College auditorium used last year, when 2,345 students attended the event. This year, a whopping 3,676 kids will visit Radio City for the rally that’s meant to pump kids up so they will ace state tests that begin March 28.
