We are thankful for the tremendous support we receive from alumni who care about LaGuardia students and want to help them make the world a more beautiful place.

We are thankful that there is still a place for the arts to flourish within the New York City public school system. And, we are thankful for YOU!

Graduation highlights and
seeking a new principal for LaGuardia

Following graduation on Monday, June 24th, a letter was sent out by Manhattan Department of Education High School Superintendent Vivian Orlen stating Principal Mars was no longer the Principal of LaGuardia. For more information regarding the events and meetings leading up to Principal Mars' departure, please click here .

Superintendent Orlen, in collaboration with Executive Superintendent Rosales, is currently interviewing candidates for Interim Acting Principal (IA Principal) for placement this summer. In fall 2019 there will be an official posting for the job of Principal and please spread the word. We need a great leader with a passion for the arts who understands what it means to be Principal of this unique and amazing arts high school!
