Safe school for new immigrants
Far from nearest subway
The Academy for Language and Technology High School, housed in a middle school, IS 303, offers new immigrants a safe, orderly environment and the chance to learn computer programming and maintenance.
Nearly every student graduates on time. Parents are pleased with the way teachers communicate with them, according to a Department of Education evaluation of the school. Students who need extra help have classes from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturdays.
All of the students are Latino, and two-thirds are classified as English language learners. The school aims to teach students English while perfecting their Spanish.
Students may take classes in computer science or media communication.
ADMISSIONS: Open to Spanish-speaking students who have been in the United States for less than four years. (Clara Hemphill, statistics and school website, July 2018)
