Leadership Prep Canarsie uses a dual leadership model to best ensure your student has the tools they need to become pillars of the community. Our Principal inspires our teachers’ instruction, energizes our students, and works to maximize student learning every day. Our Director of Operations leads the Operations team, which tackles everything from school finances and fire code compliance to late buses and lunch menus. They are the "details people" who do whatever it takes to promote and preserve instructional minutes during the day.
