High Expectations
No Excuses! 

Letter From Our Principal

   At I.S. 303 we offer our students a unique  educational experience at one of New York City’s premiere middle schools.   As principal, I embrace the opportunity to help each and every student reach his or her maximum potential by providing them with a creative, engaging and challenging academic curriculum.

   The middle school years are years of self – discovery and personal growth.  I am honored to be able to support our students as they transition from childhood to early adulthood and I am humbled by the many lessons I learn from them as they travel on their journey.

   I look forward to a very successful and productive year full of student – led initiatives and wonderful opportunities for teaching and learning.  Our students are the fortunate beneficiaries of a very talented and dedicated teaching staff that is second to none.
