Principal's Message

Dear Parents/ Guardians:
Welcome to PS/IS 25 South Richmond H.S.! I am so proud to be the Principal of this fine organization. I look forward in being that partner with you to support your all your children so that they may achieve success long after they leave South Richmond High School.
We are a cluster school consisting of 23 sites that offer both standardized and alternate assessment programs. We serve approximately 600 students from Pre-K through 12th grades or when our students reach the age of 21 and maintain a vision that children always come first. We offer a variety of programs which include; Day Treatment programs, educational programs to serve children with Autism, six Work-Study sites and seven inclusion sites in community Intermediate & High Schools. We prepare our students to take every N.Y.S. and N.Y.C. standardized exam from 3rd grade through 12th grade, including all of the H.S. Regents exams.
Our H.S. students also are given the opportunity to take PSAT and SAT exams in preparation for post-secondary enrollment into college.
We have an active PTA, School Leadership Team, Data Inquiry Team, multiple Professional Learning Communities and a full time Parent Coordinator who together provide our faculty, students & parents with much needed resources. We are continuously active in the community and provide real life experiences for all our students.
Our school reflects the philosophy that all children have the potential to learn, grow and become successful members of society. To that end, we provide a nurturing, therapeutic environment that is instructionally rich, as well as, sensitive to the needs of our children.
I encourage you to become involved within our school community by joining our PTA and/or participating in our many school functions. Our doors are always open! We are proud of what we do for children and invite you to join us in that endeavor.
Anthony R. Casella
