New Rochelle High School is a vibrant, comprehensive regents institution that thrives through the mutual benefits of its rich diversity. With our community, its leaders, parents, and teachers, we strive to develop responsible social behavior and to provide an environment in which each student may achieve maximum growth. We impress upon our students that independence, initiative, and individual responsibility are essential ingredients in learning. From the community and with full support of parents, we elicit support for our legitimate aspirations for the educational growth of our students and invite constructive suggestions.
Our school's programs encourage personal responsibility and achievement and will lead to more satisfying careers and more productive personal lives. Flexibility, concern, and warmth are key ingredients for those charged with administrating and supervising these programs. A sense of trust and collegial respect are, therefore, paramount in creating our community of learning. Our curriculum maintains the flexibility necessary to meet the needs of students living in a rapidly changing and diverse society. This curriculum aids students in creating a philosophy of life that will result in personal fulfillment and a strong work ethic. We provide opportunities for dialogue concerning the nature of change and foster students to participate in procedures of change.
Finally, the high school, in helping students to define themselves, also develops a sensitivity towards the goals, humanity, and uniqueness of others. In the end, we hope that the educational process at New Rochelle High School will give our students the values of tolerance and mutual respect: qualities essential for survival and success within the larger society.
