Principal’s Message (Middle & High)

To the Lavelle Prep Family,

This school year marks our 10th Anniversary and I am thankful that you have chosen to be part of this family. For some of you this will be your first time in our division, while others are preparing to graduate and enter college, but to all of you welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. Over the last ten years, Lavelle has proven itself to be the most successful charter school on Staten Island, our High School graduation rates, college acceptance rates, and Regents pass rates remain well above that of the district. To put it simply, our students get the attention they need from a staff dedicated to their success.  

Our staff has spent the summer preparing to make this school year the best one yet. Our commitment to improvement means that we have updated our curriculum to ensure that your child is getting the best education that we can provide. We have high expectations for our students and we will do everything we can to support them throughout this process.

With all the work that we do to improve Lavelle Prep, we still need your help. You are part of this process, your feedback and participation are critical to our success, and lets us know what is working and what needs additional attention. We encourage all families to attend our Parent Teacher Association meetings, as well check our website, and homework pages to make sure that you are always up to date as to what is happening at Lavelle Prep. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
