Insideschools review

ELLIS Preparatory Academy is a welcoming school designed for new immigrants over the age of 16. Some know almost no English and have had little education in their home countries. Others have strong academic skills and are nearly ready for college. The school is part of theInternationals Network, which has a long record of preparing new immigrants for college. Principal Norma Vega, formerly a social worker at Brooklyn International High School and principal of Bronx International High School founded ELLIS in 2008.
