A Message from the New Principal

Dear Families of the PS/IS 102 Community,

My name is WIlliam Ko and I’m thrilled to join the staff of PS/IS 102 as the new interim acting principal. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Principal Pisacano for the passion and nurturing spirit he brought to our school community in more than a decade of service.

Even for the short time that I have been at PS/IS 102, it is abundantly clear to me that we are well positioned to continue achieving greatness. Our incredible team of staff–with diverse backgrounds, interests, and skills–are united through a collective commitment in serving students, and I have no doubt that we have both the people and the tools to continue doing what it takes to ensure the success of all our children.

My vision for the new year is simple: to keep PS/IS 102 on track in promoting student achievement. Conscientious and sound decisions in the school building are the results of the many conversations between all members in the community, and I look forward to engage in that dialogue with everyone as we listen, share, and discuss how we can make a great school even better.

Ultimately our work at PS/IS 102 is to develop minds that think and hearts that dream. We invite all families to engage in this incredible and rewarding work with us as partners, and I look forward to meeting and speaking with you during the upcoming Meet the Staff Night on September 17th, 2015. If you have any questions or ideas, please do not hesitate to call or email me directly at wko2@schools.nyc.gov.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve your families.


William Ko, Principal, IA
