It is my pleasure to serve as the principal of Newcomers High School. Our school mission is to provide new immigrant students with an instructional program that emphasizes the development of English language proficiency as well as helping our students and parents with the adaptation process to a new school system, a new city, and a new country.
Newcomers High School is a school of excellence, which has received a "Well Developed" in the Quality Review by the New York City Department of Education for the past five years. This distinction is a tribute to the high caliber of our academic program as well as to our support services to students.
As the principal of Newcomers High School, I have a commitment to work with parents, students, and the school staff in order to strengthen our community and achieve the mission of our school. To this effect I invite you to be partners in this effort of sustaining our school's excellence while also identifying areas of growth and improvement. The vision we share is that through collaboration we will address the challenges and engage in share decisions to meet the academic and developmental needs of our students. To participate in this effort you can:
Our students are required to meet New York State graduation requirements, and face the challenge of passing the English Regents examination two years after arriving in our school. The process of learning a new language requires time to develop proficiency, and some of our students need more time to meet this standard.
In closing, I invite you to become active in school life, and support our school by continuing to send your children to Newcomers High School, a school of excellence for immigrant students.
