I.S.303 Academy for Career Exploration

Kids First High Expectations No Excuses! 

Letter From Our Principal

It’s great to welcome everyone to another engaging, invigorating and stimulating school year at IS 303. Our school offers students a wealth of opportunities geared towards helping them find themselves as they navigate the path they are in – the path of self-discovery. Exploring who we are and what we are good at is the key to academic success and to success in life as well. Our goal is to connect with each and every child, model our high expectations and help parents and children see what a well-connected, goal oriented school community has to offer. We invite all incoming students to stop by our offices and share a little about who they are. The rest leave to us! We look forward to serving our students and connecting with families. We also look forward to continuing our partnerships with institutions of higher education and our community. We firmly believe that strong schools will yield strong communities and we aim to prepare our students to be active members and contributors to their communities.
