Promise Academy I Elementary
A Word From Our Principal:
I would like to welcome everyone to a new and exciting school year! My name is Dr. Joseph Cordero and I am the Principal of Promise Academy I Elementary School (PAIES). We provide an exceptional education for all of our scholars. In PAIES, we also place emphasis on attributes such as leadership, respect for others, character, and good citizenship. As the Principal, I want your child to be happy and successful—I believe that you play a key role! Success is a team effort, and every player (student, teacher, and parent) is an important part of that team. When every player does his/her best, everyone wins!
“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”
– Frederick Douglass
Promise Academy I Elementary School was created in 2004 in partnership with the Harlem Children’s Zone and currently serves grades K – 5. Its mission is to give children in Harlem high-quality, well-rounded education while providing a positive atmosphere where children know they are cared for.
