    Summer Assignments for Incoming 9th Grade Students and Uniform Ordering

    Hello Families, 

    If you DID NOT attend the orientation this past May, the summer assignments along with all the other orientation documents were mailed home to you. If you did not receive them or have any questions, e-mail our Parent Coordinator, Melvin Peralta at or through phone at 212-831-1517 x102.

    Also, ALL students must be in full school uniform the first day of School, September 7, 2017.

    Order window #1 is open until midnight, August 10, 2017. Once this window closes, we collect the order information from this window and begin to produce your merchandise. We then ship it to your school approximately 2-3 weeks. Your school will contact you when your order is ready for pickup.

    Please visit our school to see size samples before you place your order. Note that polo shirts run large, as per the school, please one size down.
