Principal's Message
Dear John Bowne Community, 

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. Without a doubt, this will be a unique year. I am excited for the year to begin! I look forward to seeing our halls and classrooms busy with students and staff, socially distanced and wearing masks, of course. 

As we begin this year, we need to remember that patience and flexibility are so important. I am confident that we will all do the best that we can in order to make this year successful. 

I am committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our children. We will accomplish this by setting high academic expectations and providing supportive systems for all. One of our school-wide priorities is to know every child well. We will do this by planning engaging and motivating educational experiences related to the needs of our students. In addition, we will provide social-emotional support through our talented Guidance Department, our community partners, and our dedicated staff. 

Working together, we can ensure that John Bowne High School students strive to achieve their highest potential in the classroom and beyond. Parent and guardian involvement and support are appreciated as we work to ensure the success of all of our students.

If you have any concerns about your child, please schedule an appointment with your child’s Guidance Counselor, our Parent Coordinator, or one of the Assistant Principal. We are all here to assist you.

The staff and administration at John Bowne High School are dedicated to educating our students to the best of our ability. Should you ever have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us. 

Thank you, 

Dr. Iannelli
