Each year, Principal O'Connell takes the middle and high school valedictorians and salutatorians out to lunch to celebrate their hard work and success. On the way to Thai restaurant this year, they had the fortune of meeting Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder. (Pictured are Sunehra Subah, Eizle Bianca Salonga, Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder and Jocelyn Dicent) Unable to attend was Steven Wagner, MS Salutatorian. Steven is continuing at Scholars' HS, Sunehra is attending Brooklyn Tech, Eizle Bianca is attending Molloy College, and Jocelyn is attending Yale University. Assemblyman Goldfeder is moving on as well, and the Rockaways will miss his boundless positive energy and work ethic.

Vision Statement: To engage the entire Scholars’ Academy Community in cultivating and celebrating well rounded scholars and citizens equipped with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to pursue success and happiness in the 21st Century

Mission Statement: To prepare for college and careers of the 21st Century

Theory of Action: To leverage technology to enhance student learning through increased efficiency and communication

Teacher’s Creed ( by Principal Brian O’Connell)

First, I will do no harm: not to body, not to mind, not to attitude, not to confidence, not to dreams, not to trust.

I will inspire, foster curiosity, engage, question, challenge, coach, and counsel.

I will engage students with and raise awareness of facts and known truths spanning history and cultures in order to teach students how to think in order to question facts and prove the new truths of tomorrow.

I will help students think and act with honor, ethics, and respect.

I will prepare all students to find what possibilities exist within their beings so they may pursue their potential and independently discover their respective roles in society.

I will be an educator:  one who draws forth the strengths of students to be independent, informed, productive, and participatory members of society.

Rigorous Instruction CEP Goal

CEP Goal #1: By June 2016, teachers will plan rigorous instructional tasks to improve Questioning and Discussion, Engagement, and Assessment techniques which will result in the following teacher competency outcomes:

  • 40% of all teacher observation evaluations in these categories scoring Highly Effective (HE) in Danielson Competency 3b (Q&D),
  • 50% HE in Competency 3c (Engagement), and
  • 48% of teachers scoring HE in Competency 3d (Assessment).

Supportive Environment CEP Goal

CEP Goal #2:
By June 2016, the Scholars’ Academy will enhance the school-wide Comprehensive Advisory Program to support the social, emotional and academic well-being of students as individuals, learners and members of the community through six advisory sessions resulting in at least 90% of students who agree or strongly agree with the two survey questions that pertain to students having an adult, advisor, or teacher who they trust and who they can go to for help.

Collaborative Professional Learning CEP Goal

CEP Goal #3:
By June 2016, the Scholars’ Academy will implement a comprehensive collaborative professional learning plan that supports teacher readiness to engage in at least 6 advisory sessions and 4 lesson study cycles designed to impact teacher use of assessment via improved lesson task design, resulting in an increase in average survey scores from 2014-2015 data (new target = 3.75 or higher) on 2015-2016 Post-Professional Learning Teacher Surveys.

Effective School Leadership CEP Goal

CEP Goal #4:
By June 2016, the leaders of six teams, critical to Scholars’ Academy functioning, will engage their respective teams in at least 3 Cycles of Learning protocol sessions which will enhance inter-school communication and accountability.

The six teams are:

  1. Professional Learning
  2. School Safety
  3. College and Career Readiness
  4. Advisory (Task Force)
  5. School Implementation (Supporting SWD), and
  6. Pupil Personnel

The leader from each of these teams will share data points with Cabinet and SLT at three checkpoints throughout the year and bring feedback to their teams to continue the Cycles of Learning process.
