Principal's Message

Dear Flushing Community,

It is with great excitement that I introduce myself to you as the new Principal of Flushing High School.  As a resident of the Flushing community, it is a great honor to have been selected to lead Flushing High School.  In raising my family right here in Flushing, Queens I have a vested interest in the success of our school and the health of our community. 

As I begin my work in serving the Flushing High School Community, I am excited about the great potential that resides in students, teachers, and community of Flushing High School. I come to serve the Flushing High School Community with over 20 years of service to the students of New York City.  I have had the honor of serving the students of New York City as a teacher, assistant principal, principal, and most recently Director of School Renewal.  In particular, my past experience as a High School Principal has provided me with the tools to create and supervise an instructional program that will foster positive student outcomes and prepare students for college and beyond.  As I begin this work, I want to assure all members of our community that my stead fast commitment to the success of all students at Flushing High School will guide all my decisions as we move forward with our work. I hold my work and the work of our school to the highest professional standards to ensure that our students are getting the best possible education, and become informed and active contributors to our community.

In closing, I ask for your partnership. Please join us for the upcoming school and community events, and provide us with the feedback that will help us to best serve our students.  In addition, please feel free to contact my office at the number above if you have any questions, concerns, or feedback for us.  I look forward to meeting all of of you in days and weeks ahead.

In Partnership,

Ignazio Accardi
