Principal's Message

 Dear Art and Design community,

Very soon we will end a very enjoyable and successful school year. This time of year brings with it many assessments in the forms of finals and Regents. However, this time of year also brings with it many moments to cherish and celebrate; college acceptances, prom, graduation, and the summer break!

I want to take this moment to wish all of our seniors tremendous success in their future endeavors. As your time at Art and Design comes to an end and the beginning of adulthood commences, you will encounter many new challenges. College and life after high school demands and responsibilities will be a significant change from your familiar surroundings at Art and Design. You will have to evaluate and monitor your own progress as you work to achieve your academic and social goals. Remember that your experiences at Art and Design will help you meet these new challenges.

It gives the Administrative Team and me great pride and gratification to wish you congratulations as you graduate from Art and Design.  This is a momentous and special milestone, and we are delighted to share it with you.  You possess infinite potential, and we have every confidence that you will thrive in your future endeavors.  You are an extraordinary class, and you have made us proud to be the stewards of your education.  As you embark on this next chapter of your life, let your instincts, intellect, and heart guide you. Believe in yourself and make a positive difference in the lives of others.  As George Bernard Shaw said, “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” Congratulations Class of 2018!

Best wishes always,

Manuel Ureña, Principal
