The New York State Education Department announced last week that School 2 has shown “demonstrable improvement” in the 2018-2019 school year. The school showed progress in nearly all performance indicators and will continue to operate with Superintendent John Carmello as the receiver during the 2019-2020 school year.
On Tuesday, June 25, 2019, School 2 held its 5th Grade Graduation ceremony. Keynote speaker Siena College Assistant Director of Admissions Dale Taylor spoke to students about perseverance and then announced, to the surprise of everyone in the room, that each student will receive a $52,000 scholarship to attend Siena College after high school.
School 2 students are provided so many opportunities each and every day that you just can’t get at other schools. Please take a few minutes to watch this video to hear what School 2 parents have to say about our school. We are a school of promise and we hope you will “count us in!”
