Message from Our Principal Ms. Ailene Altman Mitchell
Middle School 88 is committed to creating an environment that supports all students on their educational journey. We are organized and structured to respond to the needs of our early adolescent learners from an academic, emotional, and social perspective. Each of our houses offers a weekly support program including: tutorial periods in all subject areas, portfolio work in performing arts, and opportunities to participate in creative writing in a variety of school publications with an invigorated focus on science and literacy. Middle School 88 also offers enrichment in the arts, such as drama, music, dance, and fine arts; student newspaper; student government; basketball; as well as many other activities. Students indulge in a balanced program based on academic performance, need, and choice.
