The Principal's Desk
I am delighted to usher in a new school year. This year we have a lot of new and returning students in our grades 7-12 TSP and AIIM Programs. We are excited to continue our partnership with the Irvington School district. Our programs are designed to provide academic and social/emotional support to students and to help them develop the necessary skills needed to earn a Regents, Advanced Regents, or Local diplomas and/or a CDOS Credential and to meet success in their post-secondary lives.
This year Irvington High School will host seven classes in grades 7-12. The TSP and AIIM programs are designed to meet each student where he or she is; to provide a nurturing school community and to help all students develop the strategies and tools that will enable them to grow emotionally and academically so that they may meet success in their post-secondary lives. Because of our lower student-to-staff ratios of 12:1:1 and 8:1:1 educational programs, instruction may be individualized and/or modified to meet the needs of each student. All students work towards a Regents Diploma and may be eligible to earn an Advanced Regents Diploma, Local Diploma and/or a CDOS Credential. Students may also have the opportunity to enroll in mainstream classes and/or activities at the high school level once they have successfully demonstrated the capacity to independently and successfully navigate in a general education setting.
I am grateful to once again have the opportunity to work with each and every student and to partner with families and the district so that all students achieve success. My door is always open to address any questions or concerns or to hear your input.
Looking forward to a successful year,
Alberta Grant-Johnson Principal
