Principal's Message

P. Pizzutello

Dear Parents/Guardians/Care Providers:

As we are about to conclude the REACH Academy’s sixth school year at our West Harrison location I find myself reflecting on our accomplishments. When I arrived as the new Principal we were still using a small inadequate building on the Residential campus. There was discussion of many options to improve the school building. In the end, moving to a community school became the obvious option. We had always served a small number of Day students in addition to the full complement of students who live residentially. But with the new school building we were able to expand to serve a more balanced population. This change expanded our student body’s diversity and brought in many more involved parents which ultimately leads to a much healthier school community. We are now very proud of the fact that students can move seamlessly from Residential to Day or Day to Residential based on their needs without any academic disruption. Six years ago, it seemed impossible to use all the space in the building; now we are a full capacity and quite honestly we have to turn away appropriate candidates simply because we don’t have the room to serve them.

In spite of our growth, REACH remains a place of acceptance, friendliness and safety....
