A Letter from the Interim Superintendent

Dear New Rochelle community,

This year continues to bring us many achievements and great news of our students, teachers and more.  

We’ve had teachers chosen to become STEM leaders; they will continue building on our creative inquiry-based lessons across our District that make use of everything from hot cocoa to an adult-sized robot. New Rochelle High School has chosen a valedictorian and salutatorian who are two great examples of our stellar student body.

Visitors to our District have included the head of the National Urban League, who taught us the importance of exploring our own histories and sharing in the celebration of others’ histories as well.

What a perfect message for our school district and its students, who come from virtually every corner of the world.

Our Black History Celebration was absolutely inspiring, our Science Research Program continues to grow and our PAVE arts students never fail to astound us with their boundless creativity. Our athletes continue to score honors near and far – even in Orlando, Florida, where our cheerleaders finished strong in a national competition.

In order to provide the best settings for our 11,000 students to experience the joy of learning and exploration, we must provide more than our incredible teachers and dedicated administrators and staff. We also must provide attractive, comfortable settings that stimulate the mind and imagination.

To that end, our $106.5 million construction program continues to restore our buildings to top condition.

As always, I invite you to get to know our schools, teachers and students better.

These are all crucial aspects of a system that provides a top-quality education for all.

Dr. Magda Parvey

Interim Superintendent of Schools
