  • 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.”

WELCOME TO JVL WILDCAT!

PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

We would like to welcome both our returning students and those of you who are joining us for the first time this year. We have high expectations at both campuses for our talented student body.  We are confident you have the ability to meet a more demanding curriculum.

Our Bronx students will benefit from more classes with two teachers in the room.  We hope you will take advantage of this and reach out if you need help completing your assignments. The Bronx staff will be challenging you to pass regents exams.

Last year’s seniors set the bar high for our current class with a record number of graduates and regents diplomas.  You can expect your teachers to challenge you to set a new standard for graduates and for both regents and advanced regents diplomas. 

We will introduce some new internship sites this term which will broaden our training assignments.  We hope to provide more students with a work experience in line with their interests.  Please keep in mind that internships are vital to our program and help our students learn new skills and earn valuable elective credits.

We would like to thank our parents and guardians for helping our students make a wise choice.  We need your continued support.  Likewise we are here to support you so please feel free to contact us with any issues or concerns.  We welcome you to take part in our monthly PTO meetings.  Please check our website for their dates and times.

We look forward to a great year!
