Message from the Principal

It is with great enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the Principal of the Lower East Side Preparatory High School. During the past 14 years it has been my privilege to serve the LESP Community as Assistant Principal.   It has been a great experience working with my administrative colleagues, teachers, support staff, and students and families.  I have strived to be both a constant catalyst for growth and change, as well as a consistent source of support.  Our student body represents more than 50 countries including the United States.  The staff at Lower East Side Prep honors the many cultural differences brought by our students and families. We explore these differences and use them to create a greater appreciation and understanding of one another. As a result of our efforts we were recognized as one of the top transfer high schools in New York City three years in a row.
