Our Mission

The mission of Boys and Girls High School is to prepare our students to achieve their full potential, make positive choices, and have a plan for life after high school. This will be accomplished by creating an environment that will successfully teach our students to think critically and conscientiously about themselves, their community, and their global village.

Principal's Message

We believe students achieve success and embrace learning when they feel safe and are supported by competent and caring adults.

Update for Families - NYCDOE - August 17 2020

Dear Families, In good times and in challenging times, I know that you want the best for your children. You want them to be safe, healthy, and happy. And you want them to always be learning, growing, and getting ready to take on the world. Our schools play such an important role in that, especially now, when the children of our city have been through so much. For us, health and safety always lead the way. Our vision for the fall is a safe, strong, and supportive learning environment and an excellent education for every one of our students. Schools will be in session and students will be learning five days per week—no matter where they are.

Throughout this summer, as we diligently work to clarify operations for the fall, I promise to be transparent about what we know—and what we don’t yet know.
