Erica Zigelman, Principal

Erica Zigelman is presently a middle school principal at The Renaissance Leadership Academy ( MS 322) located in Washington Heights, New York City.  Our school was opened as part of the small school reform in New York City as part of Chancellor Klein’s Children First Reform.  Located in the Salome Urena Educational Campus, we share the building with I.S. 218 and City College Academy of the Arts. With a student enrollment of hovering around 500, our teachers are able to create a warm and nurturing environment for the student body.  Our school vision, “Where today’s students become tomorrow’s leaders” is visible throughout the school.  Creating an environment where students are prepared for the 21st century and beyond is a major thrust at our school.  We believe that every child is able to achieve and is college bound.  Our learning community is a place where all staff and students believe in the mission and vision of our school.
