Welcome to School #15!

School 15 was originally built in 1921. We are located in the Dutch Hill section of Clifton, whose founding members were predominantly Dutch settlers. School 15 is a microcosm of the surrounding community. Approximately three hundred and fifty students experienced life in School 15 this year. Our population also allows us to blend the combined experiences of so many different children and cultures.     
Our emphasis is on aligning the curriculum with the core content standards and enhancing each student's educational experience in order to maximize their performance as a student in school and as a citizen in our community. Every day at School 15 provides each child an opportunity to develop the necessary skills in becoming lifelong learners.

  SustainableSchool 15 WON a GRANT for their Recycle, Reduce, REFILL initiative.  Three filtered water fountains were installed at School 15 to kick of their initiative.  Students and staff are working to reduce their carbon footprint and reduce their  use of disposable plastic bottles. Instead, they are refilling reusable water bottles! Students have brought in their water bottles and are recording data to determine the ounces, pints, quarts  and gallons of water consumed each month. They are also determining the number of disposable bottles they kept out of landfills and recycling plants. 
Congratulations to the Stakeholder team for seeing this initiative through.  Students: Anabelle Chiquito, David Hanna, Justin Marshall, Isis McCutchen, Andres Rocha, Maitri Shah, Amber Smith and Alberth Villegas. Parents: Rob Howard, Lindsay Ramcharitar, Debra Edwards, Maryanne Abhoud, and Katy Roman. Staff: Mrs. Conboy, Mrs. Kalb/Mr. Tomesko and Ms. Tunis
