Welcome Back - First Day of School September 8th
"Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today." - Malcolm X
Dear Humanities III Students and Families:
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year! We are both honored and excited that you have chosen to begin or continue this journey with us. This year we will continue to focus on making our vision and mission the core of our daily work with students, staff, and families. At HUM III we don’t just have a mission, we’re on a mission!
Since its inception in 2013, HUM III has strived to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities and to be college-ready by the end of four years. We believe that all students should graduate from high school prepared for the demands of postsecondary education, meaningful careers and effective citizenship. Our academic program and course offerings have expanded this year to include CUNY College Now courses, St. John’s College Advantage Program, and Advanced Placement Courses. Through a wider variety of elective courses such as History through Film, Creative Writing, and the History of Hip Hop, students will continue to develop authentic literacy skills while exploring, analyzing and synthesizing culture and the world around them.
This year is our proof point. We will have our inaugural graduating class. The road to college is long and demanding, therefore, it is our obligation to ensure that your child receives a solid foundation upon which to build his/her educational career. We look forward to partnering with you and your family to do whatever it takes to ensure that your child is successful. We hope that you will take advantage of the many opportunities to get involved at HUM III, and help to make our school an outstanding place to learn and grow.
It takes a village, including faculty, staff, families, and students to ensure child’s achievement in school and life. Every day, our team will work hard to make this the best school possible. That is our commitment to you.
