Cascades High School is a transfer school for students 17-21 years of age. It is a wonderful small school setting designed to provide individualized instruction for students who need the extra support and encouragement. The school is based on a core belief that every student deserves the best teacher and learning environment possible. Our administrative team of principal Paul Rotondo and assistant principal Ezequiel Garcia are innovative educators who see themselves as teachers first. Our faculty is committed to providing the best education possible and doing so in a caring and supportive environment. The school uses backward planning to provide classes for students and has designed individual learning plans for everyone. Cascades High School is a model school and I would highly recommend it to any student or parent.

As principal of this amazing NYC public transfer high school, I am proud to offer a unique approach to education. At Cascades we pride ourselves in going the extra mile to assist students who have not been successful elsewhere. Whether we are helping counsel a student who is a single parent, providing employment experience for another student who is living on their own or just helping a struggling learner who does best when people take the time to focus and explain things, we at Cascades realize that teaching is not a job, it is a calling.
