Our School

Dear PS 145 Family,

I am thrilled to begin my 9th school year as Principal of PS 145 The Bloomingdale School. We are dedicated to providing your child the best possible academic and socio-emotional experience possible. I am confident that the entire PS 145 staff is committed to providing the support that is needed for all of our learners to excel.

It is our whole-hearted belief that children will experience academic success when they have a positive self-image, which is why we provide a variety of opportunities for them to develop confidence and self-esteem. Whether it is through academics, performing arts, visual arts, fiber arts, health & wellness or athletics, our staff brings their variety of talents to the table to give our kids the most well-rounded school experience.

The staff’s common mission is to use what we learn about your child on a daily basis in the classroom to meet their needs, both academically and socially. We provide both enrichment opportunities for students who are quick to master a topic as well as academic support to students who may struggle in either literacy or mathematics.

We are a close-knit family that extends beyond the walls of the school which is what makes PS 145 a unique place to learn. We look forward to another successful school year and many exciting opportunities to see our children shine.
