Principal’s Message

Dear Parents and Guardians:


I’m proud of our scholars’ accomplishments in the classroom, on the stage, and in various competitions. Last year our ELA and math proficiency increased, student engagement grew, attendance improved, and we installed a state of the art Mac Lab with two 3D printers and a recording studio. We also partnered with various organizations to ensure that we remain focused on supporting the whole child as a New York City Community School. As a founding staff member and former Assistant Principal of New Heights Middle School, I look forward to partnering with you to continue the legacy of success at our school.


Throughout the school year, we will focus on character education and social-emotional learning through our school’s five Core Values of Citizenship, Responsibility, Respect, Relentless Pursuit, and Optimism. Our teachers and staff will use data to create rigorous and engaging lessons that meet the individual needs of our scholars. And I will work hard to ensure that all scholars continue to experience success by continuing to build strong relationships with parents, students, and our community partners.


Our entire school staff is looking forward to a very exciting and rewarding school year. We have an exciting year ahead of us and we look forward to getting our scholars ready for high school and college.

-Mr. Michael Wiebusch

Principal & Founding Staff Member
