Letter from Chancellor Carranza
As you may have noticed, parking around I.S. 72 can be something of a challenge.
However, at no time is it acceptable to park your vehicle on private property. This includes but is not limited to the church across the street on Saxon Avenue or the private residences around the school. Nor is it acceptable to park in the bus slots.
Also, please do not indulge in reckless practices such as backing up onto Ferndale Avenue from Saxon Avenue in order to drop a student off at the main entrance. If it is necessary to drop your student directly in front of the school, please come up Ferndale Avenue from Travis Avenue, as Ferndale is a one way street.
The safety of our students, staff, and the community is of the utmost importance!
Thank you for your cooperation!
2017 NYS Math and ELA Scores are now available on your NYC Schools Account!
COLLEGE ACCESS FOR ALL
As part of the Chancellor's Initiative, I.S. 72, Port Richmond High School and Wagner College have entered into a partnership to help our students be prepared for the future. Look for more information in the coming school year!
