 High Expectations. No Excuses! 

Letter From Our Principal, Carmen N. Amador

       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.

       We also look forward to continuing our partnerships with institutions of higher educations such as Stony Brook, Molloy,  recently the City University of New York and our community.

Audrey Houston, Assistant Principal

Message to Students and Families

       I am very excited to be working with the sixth, seventh, and eighth graders and their families this year. With hard work and dedication, the eighth grade can be the best and most exciting year of middle school.   We have many fun and exciting new programs and activities planned to make this school year a very rewarding one.

       The most important thing we can do to make this year a success is to be actively involved in what our children are doing in school every day! Parents as Partners is a crucial component in making middle school the best educational experience possible for our children. I look forward to working with you to ensure your child's last year at IS 303 is memorable and successful.  

I wish you a successful school year!
