Principal's Message

I am grateful for the opportunity to lead and represent our P.S. 456 community. I look forward to building strong and positive partnerships that will support our students, staff, and families.

It is my priority to create a learning environment where our students thrive during their middle school years while laying a strong foundation for high school and beyond.

At Bronx Bears, we constantly strive to provide innovative instructional methods to engage students in literacy across every classroom, a variety of applications in technology, and 21st Century skills yielding proficient readers, writers, speakers, listeners, and thinkers.

Together, we will foster a culture that celebrates the hard work of our staff and our students while emphasizing the importance of self-care and mindfulness.

Together, we are committed to preparing our students academically, socially and emotionally so they can be successful in today’s society and beyond.

Growing Together as a Community
