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.

Coronavirus Update for Families - RECs March 19 2020

In order to successfully fight COVID-19, our first responders, health care providers, transit workers, and other key personnel must be able to come to work. That is why we have created Regional Enrichment Centers (RECs)—places where the children of these front-line workers can be safely cared for while their parents continue to serve the city in this time of need. Staffed by DOE employees and community-based organization partners, the centers will provide children with three hot meals daily, remote learning time with their teachers, activities like art and music, and social and emotional support. Regional Enrichment Centers will be available citywide. Please view attached file for more information...
