Crotona International High School

Overview written by the school: Our mission is to partner with families and local organizations to serve English Language Learners who have recently immigrated to the United States from countries around the globe. Our graduates are prepared for success both in college and in careers in media & communications. Our school and classes are small; every student is known and supported to achieve.
