New School in Staten IslandAmid the coronavirus pandemic, AHRC NYC’s new special education school opened on Staten Island for the 2020-2021 school year to serve school-age and preschool students with autism and other disabilities.  As reported by, the school opened its doors last week for a Family Fun Day for families of currently enrolled students, as well as an open house for prospective students.

It’s a proud moment today, because it’s been almost a full school year with our school community and families to come and see the school and see all of the wonderful things that the children get to do each day,” said Principal Chris Uccellini. “So we felt it would be a great opportunity to open our school to families and even to prospective families to come see us, say hello and let the borough of Staten Island know that we’re here. We’ve been very proud of what we’ve been able to do during a pandemic.”
