Building Leaders - One Child at a Time

Principal's Message

Welcome to the Fordham Leadership Academy website.  It is one of my greatest honors to be the Principal of this amazing Community School.  My story is similar to countless of others, of humble but proud beginnings and living testament of what public education can accomplish.  This is what FLA is all about!  
FLA was established in 2015 and since it has become a thriving, vibrant and caring community where children are nurtured, their voices carry strength, and are built into leaders.   As a school leader, I am a firm believer that through quality education lives can be transformed and communities can gain a voice.   This is FLA's commitment- to provide the tools needed to empower students to succeed.  
Lastly, I leave you with a quote from one of the most transformative leaders of our time:
 “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
