Dear Parents/Guardians

Student success is the goal of every staff member at the High School for Law, Advocacy and Community Justice.  We are a school that values cooperation, collaboration, hard work, safety and respect.  We work diligently to ensure the success of each student by providing a balanced educational program.  Additionally, we offer academic and social-emotional support for students who may need those services.

The High School for Law is made up of extraordinary students, faculty and staff. Each group contributes in creating a supportive atmosphere that benefits all members of our school community.   Our goal is to see that students are provided with an educational experience that develops their intellect and character. We strive to guarantee that students are provided with an academic experience that prepares them to face the challenges of the 21stCentury to be college ready and to be productive members of society.

We ask for your support and participation in this effort by sending your child to school every day, monitoring homework and progress, and asking your child to share what they learned at school each day.

School begins every day at 8:00am.  The building opens at 7:15am and breakfast is available at that time.  The first day of school is Thursday, September 4, 2014.

Students are expected to wear the school uniform shirt/sweatshirt as their outermost layer every school day.

We would like to provide some important dates for beginning of the year events.

We look forward to working with all the members of the school community.  We want each member of the school community to consider the need for Integrity, Respect, and Accountability in everything we do and say during the school year.

If you have any questions or concerns during the school year please contact the school at (212)501-1240.

All the best for a successful school year.
