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



VISION: We will become a Level 3 and Level 4 school.













MISSION: To support and develop the entire school community so that all students are college-and-or career ready.  With foci on all populations of our students, teachers will engage collaboratively to ensure accelerated student learning through reflective practice and professional learning experiences. Holding high academic standards and expectations for every student inclusive of all cultures, races, religions, disabilities and or other life choices, we provide a safe learning environment where all students have and share their voice.  Following our guiding philosophy that every student deserves an effective teacher, 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 Parents/ Guardians & Families:       


April 2 & 3 is the ELA state test and Tuesday and Wednesday, May 1 & 2 for Mathematics. As we all know if your child misses this exam it puts him or her in jeopardy to repeat the grade. Mr. Echavarria will be making wake up calls for the next two weeks to remind students to come early for these exams. Vacation Academy will be in session Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, April 23, 24, and 25, 2019. We expect all students to attend these dates in preparation to the NYS Math State Exam.


Attention Parents!!!



The Learning Environment Survey is very important for your child’s school. The Department of Education carefully reviews Parents answers and uses the results of the survey to make improvements in the schools, increase opportunities for students, and to continue to raise expectations for learning and safety. For more information on filling out the school surveys please contact Mr. Echavarria 718-583-6767 or visit our website
