Principal's Message

Dear SPHS Community,

As the Acting Principal of our esteemed institution, I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to each member of our vibrant school community. At Sunset Park High School, we take immense pride in fostering an environment that combines the best of both worlds: the resources and opportunities of a large school, with the personalized support and camaraderie of a small learning community.

Our commitment to ensuring every student feels supported and valued is at the core of our mission. Through our small learning communities, we provide an intimate and nurturing environment where students can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Whether it's through our dedicated teachers, counselors, or support staff, we strive to create a sense of belonging and empowerment for each individual.

Embedded within the fabric of our school is a profound dedication to the Sunset Park community, whose advocacy and support were instrumental in the creation of our institution. We recognize the importance of giving back to the community that has entrusted us with the education of its youth, and we are committed to being active participants in its growth and well-being.

At SPHS, we understand that every student is unique, with diverse interests and aspirations. That's why we offer a wide array of opportunities encompassing various areas of interest, ensuring that each student can explore and pursue their passions. Whether it's through our robust extracurricular programs, specialized academic tracks, or partnerships with local organizations, we strive to provide avenues for students to excel and flourish.

Central to our ethos is the cultivation of strong relationships and kindness. We believe that a culture of respect, empathy, and inclusivity is essential for creating a supportive and enriching learning environment. Through acts of kindness, empathy, and understanding, we aim to nurture not only academic success but also the development of compassionate and socially responsible individuals.

While we are committed to providing our students with pathways to college, we recognize that post-secondary opportunities extend far beyond traditional academia. Whether it's through vocational training, internships, or other career-oriented programs, we are dedicated to equipping our students with the skills and experiences necessary for success in their chosen paths.

I encourage each member of our community to embrace the spirit of collaboration, curiosity, and excellence. Together, we will continue to uphold the values that define us and empower our students to reach their fullest potential.


Warm regards,


Miguel Negron

Acting Principal
