    The principal of the school is Mr.Manny Sanzone whose dedicated committment is enormous. I believe his goal is to bring out the best in every child in the school. Of the 700- 800 hundred children in the school he knows not only their names but is aware in all of their potential. He makes regular visits to all of the classes to assure both teacher and student is evolving in learning and teaching. He promotes respect and spirit in both school and self. His solid committment seems to make the students want to achieve toward their greatest potential. I believe this school could grow to be a model for other schools throughout the state and possibly country.
