Dear MLK Students, Faculty, Parents and Guardians,
I am looking forward to kicking off the 2016-17 school year. We have many exciting academic and extracurricular initiatives planned to meet the needs of our ever changing student population. At MLK High School we provide compassionate and rigorous educational services. Our students come first in every way. Our goal is to educate and guide each student on an individual basis by providing them with the tools to strengthen their abilities so they can achieve their dreams and goals. The team of teachers, counselors, support staff, and administrators have a keen understanding of where our students began their journey as adolescents, and are eager to inspire and motivate our students to meet their challenges head-on and achieve more than they ever thought possible. I am excited about the new school year that is upon us at MLK and cannot wait to work together to ensure success as an entire school community.

The Greenburgh-Graham School District celebrates the three students who have won achievement awards from The Lower Hudson Council of School Superintendents (LHCSS) over the past two years.

This year, on Wednesday, May 18, Kiara Cornejo, Salutatorian of the 2016 graduating class of Martin Luther King HS, and a member of the PBL Program, was honored at the 51st annual Achievement Dinner.

Every Student, Every Day
The Greenburgh-Graham School District promotes perfect school attendance. Our initiative “Every Student, Every Day” is our way of ensuring that students come to school daily. Being in school, leads to succeeding in school. Chronic absenteeism is most detrimental factor that prevents students from succeeding. Student attendance impacts achievement, high school graduation, and college attainment rates all of which affect economic productivity and social progress.

Voices, Hearts, Lives
High school students worked with artist-in-residence Richard Hoehler, writer, director and performer from Penguin-Random House, to create original pieces which culminated in an original theater production called Voices, Hearts, Lives. For a month and a half, students worked for 1 & 1/2 hours a day, 3 days a week to produce amazing, poignant, introspective narrative pieces which they performed collaboratively for an audience of friends, relatives, and faculty members.Greenburgh-Graham Union Free School District
