Semester Welcome

The fall semester starts today, and we're happy to welcome 81 members of the Class of 2014 to The Verrazano School for their first semester at CSI!  These incoming freshmen join the 200+ sophomores, juniors, and seniors who comprise the Verrazano student body.   The freshmen represent 33 different high schools in Staten Island, Brooklyn, Manhattan, the Bronx, Westchester County, and New Jersey.  Included among these incoming freshmen are thirty National Honor Society members, one valedictorian, one salutatorian, an Eagle Scout, and several student government members including a senior class president.  A number of incoming Verrazano students have played on varsity sports teams as well as volunteered many hours at various non-profit organizations during high school.

We welcome the transfer students who were accepted to The Verrazano School for the upcoming semester, and we also welcome faculty members who are teaching in the freshman learning communities and other Verrazano courses. 

With our first graduating class, the Class of 2010, now in graduate school and pursuing various career paths, we look forward to maintaining connections with former students, working with the current students, and congratulating many more successful Verrazano graduates in the years to come. 

Here's to the 2010-2011 academic year!
