Failure is not an option, because...success is the only option! 

Our mission is to cultivate and develop the entire school community so that all students are college-and-or career ready. With foci on all populations of children, teachers will engage collaboratively to ensure accelerated student learning through reflective practice and professional learning experiences. A guiding philosophy of all adults in the school community is that every student deserves an effective teacher, and we work tirelessly to seek out opportunities that will advance this belief.


Our goal is to increase the number of level 3 and 4 students by 10% in English Language Arts and Mathematics.


Dear Parent/Guardians & Families:

I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful hot weather in NYC. We just want to remind you if your child doesn’t meet the promotion standards for his or her grade, the family will get a letter recommending that the student go to summer school. If you have a question about whether your child should attend summer school, please contact Mr. Echavarria, Parent Coordinator, at 718-583-6767. All summer school and promotion policy is detailed in Chancellor’s Regulation A-501.

Summer school 2017 will not be in our building due to construction. The summer school site will be at IS 219, 3630 3rd Ave, Bronx, NY. Summer school hours of operations are from 8:30am to 2:30pm, Monday thru Thursday. All students must be in attendance and ready to learn.
