Welcome From the Principal

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year.  I hope your summer was relaxing and enjoyable.  This will be my second year as principal of Isador Cohen and I am extremely excited about the upcoming school year.  The experiences I have gained from my previous year will assist me in continuing the work of building an excellent learning community at Isador Cohen.  It continues to be an honor and privilege to serve as principal of such a wonderful community-centered school. The staff and I have engaged in some wonderful work this summer and we are eager to have our scholars return. The teachers and staff of Isador Cohen are committed to your student and we strongly believe that it is important to focus on educating the whole child both academically and emotionally.

For those new to our campus we offer many academic and enrichment programs such as MESA, GATE, MASTERS, lunch time sports league, preschool, and special education.  We serve diverse populations that bring varying life experiences.  It is the belief of all staff members that every child can and will learn – NO EXCUSES!   We encourage parents to volunteer in classrooms and for school-wide events in order to gain a better understanding of our school community.  We hold an open door policy that supports the needs of all.  Together we can achieve great things.  Please contact the office if you would like additional information about our school, community, or programs.
