Principal's Corner


To the SFE Community,

We welcome everyone in our community to the beginning of the new school year. We look forward to continuing our tradition of partnering with parents in supporting our students both academically and socially. We believe and strive for continuous improvement from our students and us.

School for Excellence is a partner with Montefiore Hospital. The Montefiore School Health Program is in our school an we encourage all families to enroll their School for Excellence child. The application can be obtained on this website or at our school.

Our after school programs begin 9/12/2017. We hope all of our students will find something that will interest them. Drama, fitness, chess, school farm, book club and cooking are a few of the choices.

Excellence is the goal for everyone associated with our school. Students, you will get out of school what you put into school. Keep up with your work, cooperate in class and be the best you can be. Parents, follow your child's progress on IO Skedula/PupilPath, which you can log onto through this website. Make sure your child is doing homework or studying every night and reach out to us if you have any questions. We, as a school, will strive to get better everyday to give our students a great education.

Good luck this year to everyone,

Jeff Houston
