Overview

Newcomers High School was created to provide immigrant students with an academic program geared to achieve excellence by responding to their unique needs. Our school has designed a rigorous instructional program, while at the same time providing our students and their parents with a supportive environment in their new country. A unique feature of our school is that students have the opportunity to transfer to a variety of educational options and specialized programs available to high school students. The school identifies abilities, strengths, needs and interests, while offering programs that meet these needs. In addition to promoting academic and athletic excellence, our instructional program emphasizes important learning objectives such as the acquisition of English with an intensive English as a Second Language Program, the developing of native language skills, and the appreciation of cultural diversity.
Students receive an intensive multicultural instructional program in which they learn how to respect themselves and each other. A special class is offered to all students to explore their career objectives and assist them with their special needs.
We have an active COSA with activities for integrating students into society and the United States. We participate in PSAL. After school sports include girls & boys basketball, soccer, volleyball & tennis. Students can learn about life outside NYC through special partnerships with other districts.
We have these partnerships: Council for Unity, ADL (Anti Defamation League), The Annenberg Partners are: The American Museum of the Moving Image, Film/Video Arts and the Teachers and Writers Collaboration.
