Principal's Message

Dear HSLPS Family, It is an honor to assume the leadership of the High School for Law and Public Service. I am extremely happy to be back in my community. I started my career in this district in 2006 as a one-to-one paraprofessional, and soon thereafter transitioned to a teaching role where I thought math and science to students with disabilities. Like many of our students, I arrived in the United States from the Dominican Republic at fifteen years of age, with no knowledge of English and with the pressure of earning high school credits weighing on me daily as I attempted to adjust to a new school, a new home, and a new country. I also juggled helping my mother with my sisters, as well as working as a cashier in a supermarket when I was not practicing for my volleyball games. Four years later, I graduated from a bilingual class and attended college here in the City. Along with your support, I will work diligently to create an inclusive environment where all students feel welcome, appreciated, and supported to learn. I am looking forward to meeting with all you to learn more about your perspective on our school. Together, we will continue to foster an environment where students feel challenged by their teachers and peers, and equipped to transition to post-secondary education, college, and career ready. In unity, Paula Lev
