Congratulations 

to our 

Science Olympiad team 

Congratulations to the following students: Miryam Bigord and Sanskriti Khadka competed in Anatomy and Physiology.  A 6th place medal was won by Nikoloz Koviridze in Fermi questions.  Tony Alfy, Isabella Feliz and Franklyn Perez won 6th place in the Flight event, and Sherry Salib and Kevin Kulmazewski won 6th place in Wifi Lab.  Bridges designed by Marcia Criollo and Katherine Mendez won 5th and 12th places in Bridge Building.  Martin Denkiewicz and Victor Hernandez won an impressive 4th place in Wifi lab.  In Wifi Lab, Grover Cleveland’s antenna had the strongest tested signal at the maximum tested distance of all competing teams’ tests and came in first place in that portion of the Wifi Lab event.  Thank you to our students for their persistence and dedication, and to the Grover Cleveland community for their help in making this event a success.  Go Tigers! 

International Day of Tolerance

November 16th holds a very special place in the hearts of many people, recognized internationally as the day for tolerance. The day itself seeks to promote understanding in order to develop a sense of camaraderie and solidarity across community boundaries.  By spreading awareness we become more knowledgeable of different cultures and people around the world we gain the ability to care for those around us regardless of differences. Through a deeper understanding, we are able to put inconsequential differences behind us and push potential friendships forward in solidarity and love.


~Homer


Tolerance day is a beautiful opportunity to appreciate the rich diversity of our world's cultures and forms of expression. I had a great time taking pictures and teaching the students at Riverview School about photography, as I got to know students who experience the world differently and their various ways of expression. As we took pictures of things we found interesting we also bonded by taking pictures of each other.  It’s amazing how you can connect with people who you don't get a chance to socialize often with and how important it is to appreciate all the diversity around us.

Student Dress Code

 

 

In order to maintain a positive learning environment, it is expected that Grover Cleveland High School students dress in a manner that maintains an environment of college and careers and teaching and learning. We expect Grover Cleveland High School students to address appropriately, to ensure safety and to keep the focus on teaching and learning, while expressing their individuality. We would like all parents and guardians to remind students of proper dress protocols on campus.

 

Students, please take note of the following clothing items and accessories that do not support college and career readiness and so are not appropriate for a school setting:

 

 

If a student comes to school wearing clothing prohibited by the dress code, then the student’s parent/guardian will be notified, the student may be subject to the interventions and disciplinary responses set forth in the NYC DOE Discipline Code, and the student will be expected to make appropriate adjustments to his or her clothing to conform with the dress code, i.e.: turning shirt inside out, borrowing temporary clothing until the end of the school day, etc.

DOE Student Accounts

DOE Student Accounts

Every New York City public school student has a DOE account. It is created automatically when you enroll in school. Your DOE account stays the same the entire time you are in school, and with it you can access all DOE technology platforms.

Platforms include:

· TeachHub,

· Google for Education,

· iLearnNYC,

· Microsoft Office,

· Zoom,

· and more.

Getting Started

Your school must give you your username and a password. Once you have these, you can start signing into DOE applications.

Your school may give you a generic password. If so, we recommend you reset the password yourself, to something unique. This will give you more safety and security. Instructions on how to reset your own password are below. The best way to start using your DOE account is to sign into TeachHub. From here, you can access all DOE applications with one click, and you only need to sign in once.

Resetting Your Password

There are three different ways you can reset your DOE password:

1. Reset it yourself through the Student Self-Service tool. To use the Student Password Reset Password & Profile Management (schools.nyc) tool you must have created a PIN or set up security questions. If you have not done either, see options 2 and 3. Through this method, you can reset your own password once every 30 days.

2. Ask your parent or guardian to reset it through NYCSA. Your parent or guardian can reset your password in NYCSA. If they do not have a NYCSA account, they can create one for free.

3. Ask your school to reset your password for you.

If you are unable to reset your password, contact Mrs. Martinez via email at Lmartinez37@schools.nyc.gov for help.


Letter from Principal

March 16, 2022

 

 

Dear Grover Cleveland Community,

 

Two years ago today, New York City Public Schools were closed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.  So much has changed in these two years.  Many in our communities lost loved ones due to the virus.  Too many became unemployed and struggled to meet basic needs.  It is important that as our community continues to recover, we remember the loss and sacrifice caused by COVID. 

 

Yet still, we have much to be thankful for as we continue to move forward as a school community.  During the school closure, I was humbled by the dedication of our teachers, guidance counselors, support staff, and administrators who worked so diligently to support our students’ social, emotional, and educational needs.  I am in awe of you, our parents and caregivers, who are so steadfast in your love and advocacy for your children. I am especially grateful for our wonderful Grover Cleveland High School students who faced adversity, who struggled, and who persevered in strength and resiliency.  Because of our staff, families, and especially our students, our school has emerged stronger than before. 

 

·        Our graduation rate is the highest it has been in 20 years

·        The graduation rate for non-native English speakers is higher than it has been for many years

·        More students are on-track for promotion to the next grade

·        We have narrowed the achievement gap between students with IEPs and all students

·        We have maintained our award winning programs, certifications, and partnerships including:

 

·        Lifeguard Training

·        EMT Certification

·        Amazon Cloud Computing

·        Cisco Networking

·        Syracuse University

·        LaGuardia Community College, College Now

 

I am particularly excited to share with you that Grover Cleveland High School was THE FIRST SCHOOL IN NEW YORK CITY to award the seal of civic literacy. 

 

We have much to be grateful for as a community, but especially, I am thankful for all of you, our parents and guardians who place your trust in us to care for your precious children each and every day.  Wishing you health and well-being during this Year of the Tiger. 

 

Humbly and with Gratitude,

 

 

 

Marc A Pascente

MISSION STATEMENT | VISION

 MISSION STATEMENT

At Grover Cleveland High School, we are committed to providing a rigorous, engaging, relevant education that equips students for the academic and professional challenges of the 21st Century. 

We are dedicated to fostering a diverse, nurturing, safe and student-centered environment where our children excel academically with continued cultural, social and emotional supports.

VISION

We believe students learn best when cognitively engaged in inquiry-based work through challenging and rigorous curricula that motivates them to formulate questions, think critically, evaluate, problem-solve and engage with one another in meaningful discourse and analysis.

We will implement rigorous instruction that is culturally responsive, delivered by a caring and dedicated staff that facilitates student engagement and discourse in a supportive and challenging learning environment.

We will foster an inclusive environment where diverse learners have equal access to instruction and graduate prepared to be civic-minded and engaged citizens of our school community and beyond and to thrive in the college and career of their choosing.

STUDENT ACTIVITIES

Grover Cleveland High School caters to the needs and interests of our students. Clubs can be academic, athletic or social in nature. Forming a club is easy. Students simply have to gather at least 10 interested students and gain approval from the Coordinator of Student Activities and/or the principal.

Key Club: Key Club students positively impact the community by engaging in community-based events throughout the year, which not only helps improve the community at large, but also helps build leadership abilities and bolster their resumes for college and career.

Cheer: Currently being run as a club, our Cheer program is well-on-its way to becoming a competitive sport. Cheer not only challenges our students physically and mentally, but also promotes teamwork, character building, and academic excellence.

Robotics: The Robotic Club gather students who are interested in learning about and working with robots.  It is competition driven club where teams of students must design and build a robot that can compete against opponents from other high schools in a series of specific challenges.

WHO WE ARE?

We are  large comprehensive public high school that offer many opportunities and pathways for students success.

We are a student-centered school deeply committed to the philosophy of creating life-long learners. Our goal is to prepare students to be productive, pro-active members of society. Our students are challenged to excel in both academic and extra-curricular programs. They are encouraged to explore, experiment and question. The faculty and staff of Grover Cleveland expect our students to meet high academic and behavioral standards. Therefore, we provide every possible means of support to help students meet and surpass those standards.

We encouraged students to be physically active and engage in sport activities.  Besides housing a pool in the main building, the Grover Cleveland High School campus also contains an attached softball field, as well as a newly renovated multi-sport field a few block away where baseball, handball, softball, soccer, tennis, and track and field can be played. Here at Grover Cleveland High School we firmly believe in teaching the whole child, academically, socially, and physically.
