I.S. 73 is a middle school in Maspeth, New York. We serve a very diverse community with over 30 different home languages spoken. As a result of our large student population of over 2,000 children, we have established five academies. These academies are “small learning communities” which create a smaller school within one large one. Each academy has an Assistant Principal, Guidance Counselor, and Dean who serve as each student’s “go-to team.” This “go-to team” serves as a support system for the students and their families within their academies. Each academy is created equally and students are randomly selected for their academy designation as they enter I.S. 73. From that point on, each academy team works with their students, both academically and emotionally, preparing them for High School, College and future Careers! We are continuing our work in improving school to home communication. Our goal is to maximize the use of this new website to provide you with current information on a variety of school-wide happenings. We will provide up-to-date links to academic information, after school programs, and academy information as frequently as possible. We hope you find this website useful and helpful. Please do not hesitate to provide us with feedback on how we can improve this website to further improve upon our communication between school and home.
