Letter from the Principal


Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of the P.S. 159 school community.  This year has been unprecedented as we faced the challenges incurred by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, there have been many changes, but what has not changed is our commitment to nurturing, supporting, and educating every student.

This year we are celebrating the return of students and staff to our school building and our theme is “Welcome Back Home.”  I look forward to forming partnerships with you as we work together to ensure that every child becomes a life-long learner and reaches their academic potential through enriching curriculum, engaging hands-on activities, and inspiring teachers and staff.

The administrators, faculty and staff work diligently every day to provide rigorous relevant curricula for our students, in a COVID safe learning environment. As such, we are working meticulously to ensure that the school is safe for the return of our students, teachers, and staff.  Our goal is to provide services that reflects a culture of learning, caring, respect, and quality.

It is my heartfelt privilege to serve as the Principal.  I sincerely believe that a school environment that is collaborative draws on the strength of all stakeholders and fosters a positive school climate that makes a difference in the lives of our students.  I look forward to meeting and working with you to continue the tradition of excellence. If we can be of assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.  We are here for you.


Nefertiti Lee, 
Acting Interim Principal
