MESSAGE FROM SCHOOL PRINCIPAL, DR. ANGELO ROMANIELLO JR.
Starting school again since I dropped out was really weird to me…throughout all my situations no one gave up on me. No one judged me for being twenty and trying to make a difference in life. They guided me; they showed me how I shouldn’t be ashamed, I should be proud of myself.- Rosa Harris
I-LEAD has taught me how to manage my time more wisely and organize myself and priorities. It has helped me discover my passion and tested my abilities in the area I want to work in.- Cristal Liriano
I knew I had to get my life together I just didn’t know how. I came to this school the first year it opened looking for something new, a change, a new beginning and I found it. I-LEAD Charter School gave me a second chance. Something that I needed.- ILCS Learner
