Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the New School for Leadership and Arts!  I am very proud to serve as principal for this dynamic middle school serving the Kingsbridge community.  Since our school was founded, we have sought to not only support students academically but also socially and emotionally through a robust Advisory program and after school and enrichment opportunities.  
One particular highlight to the NSLA approach is the inclusion of the arts within the curriculum and the artistic expression that comes from its study.  We believe that academic and artistic excellence go hand in hand and this belief, underscores part of our vision for the success of the school.  
Here at NSLA, we are fortunate to have some of the best teachers and school community members New York City has to offer.  Our teachers, in particular, are a resourceful team committed to making the middle school years a time of expanded learning and profound positive character development. 
I invite you to come visit our school and learn more about our approach to these most critical years in a student's life.
Eduardo Mora
Principal of NSLA
