Chancellor’s Message

“When I arrived at the School for International Studies in Brooklyn, Principal Jillian Juman ushered me to a beautifully set table where I enjoyed an outstanding breakfast—including quiche, coffee, and an amazing parfait—cooked and served by students. Under Principal Juman’s leadership, School for International Studies is in the process of becoming a full career and technical education school focused on the culinary arts, with strong partnerships embedded within the curriculum to provide hands-on learning experiences. The school was recently selected as a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme, which emphasizes academic excellence, professional development, and a curriculum that supports global citizenship. The school is also pursuing partnerships and external sources of funding. Through a 21st Century CommunityLearning Centers grant, for instance, seventh-grade students are studying robotics, which teaches them how to focus, collaborate, and convert ideas into products. These are the types of skills our global economy will increasingly demand.”  ~ Chancellor Carmin Fariña, May 2014
