  • Important Update Regarding Weather and Transportation

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    We have received a message from Deputy Chancellor Elizabeth Rose, regarding transportation in anticipation of tomorrow’s snowstorm.

    “At this time we are cancelling all field trips requiring yellow buses and PSAL games for tomorrow.  Elementary schools should also cancel any field trips planned using public transportation or walking.  We strongly encourage middle and high schools to postpone all field trips as well.

    We will make a decision regarding the school day, after-school, and evening programs following a 4:00pm update from the National Weather Service.  Information regarding school activities tomorrow will be shared via email to all principals and superintendents, on the DOE website at, via social media, and on local radio and television stations.”

  • Danish Visit on April 22, 2016

    On Friday, April 22, 2016, the Danish Minister for Environment and Food, Mr. Esben Lunde Larsen along with Ms. Anna Cecile De Klauman, Minister Counselor, Food Agriculture and Fisheries and five staff members visited our culinary kitchen. 


    In addition to providing a wonderful lunch Chef Bill Peacock and several of our aspiring chefs gave an informative description of our culinary program.  Wildcat graduate and Culinary Associate Luis Nova described the transformative hydroponics program.


    The Danish delegation was in N.Y.C. to attend the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development. Ms. De Klauman had this to say about their visit to our Bronx campus, “I have to say that the visit more than lived up to our expectations! It was very inspiring and interesting to learn about the Wildcat program and your teaching philosophy – the Culinary program and the Urban farming and not least to meet and talk with your fantastic students. The food they prepared was amazing. When we left the Wildcat school the minister said, that this was a visit that he would never forget.”

Our fall term is rapidly nearing the end.  We would like to encourage our parents and guardians to impress upon our students the need to have good attendance and punctuality and to complete all classroom assignments.  We would like to see our students maximize the number of credits they can earn for the term.

Teachers will be starting regents prep classes after the holidays and it is imperative for all students who are taking regents to participate in these classes.  Our teachers sacrifice their lunch break to provide regents prep instruction.  We expect students to take advantage of this opportunity.

Wildcat students are bright and talented.  The Regents exams give them the chance to excel.

We would like to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season and a healthy and happy New Year.
