  1. Love this School and what it is bringing to the community. Staff is dedicated and ALL about the students.

  2. concerned teacher

    Hector Velazquez is an incompetent fool and a coward. It was only a matter of time before we saw him on this site.

  3. This post is to clarify some things.

    Principal Velazquez is a Bronxite, started as a paraprofessional and has taught for over 10 years before becoming a principal. He is not a newbie newcomer. He doesn’t suffer fools lightly, and doesn’t play games. If you can handle this, then perhaps the school is for you.

    He takes his mission seriously and expects the same of others. Why shouldn’t he take the education of Black and Brown young men seriously? How each individual teacher perceives how he runs the school is likely to differ according to their previous experience.

    It seems as if there were some disgruntled posters here, who gave no concrete facts or issues. That is not helpful or fair. It doesnt warn prospective teachers or help to clarify areaa of improvement or document patterns of abuse.If the issues are not documented and addressed, do that. If the issues are interpersonal, address that.

    Here is what I saw, a clean well kept school, portraits of faculty, friendly office staff. Students in uniform, developmentally appropriate teen behavior. Well dressed faculty.

    During our conversation, Mr. Velazquez communicated a clear vision for the school, was honest and reflective in his description and fair in his questioning. He admitted to his challenges and conflicts. It seems it is up to the faculty to build some bridges here.
