Mayor Bill de Blasio & Chancellor Carranza Make Important Announcement at New World High School!

Wednesday, January 30, 2019 was a busy day at New World High School! They hosted Mayor Bill de Blasio and Chancellor Carranza, providing the perfect back drop for the Mayor to announce the overall increase in NYC’s graduation rate. New World High School was chosen because it had 90% graduation rate last year.


















New World High School is a Lehman Middle and High School professional development school (PDS). Lehman Professors Sunyata Smith and Serigne Gningue are Lehman Middle and High School faculty who work closely with the school in preparation of our teacher candidates.

Mr. Mithat Gashi and Mr. Hassan Tmimi are Principal and Assistant Principal. Mr. Gashi has been teaching foundations courses in MHSE since 2003 and also co-chairs the PDS Council. Mr. Tmimi designed the activities for Lehman’s Noyce internships, which are the foundations of the course outline for ESC 790 and now ESC 476-477. Every single Noyce STEMELL teacher will tell you the impact Mr. Tmimi has had on their training and ability to teach. He taught them how to observe and evaluate classroom and videos using the Danielson framework, and the different structures and usage of teaching ELLs through Content Based Instruction (One and two-way CBI). New World High School has even hired three science teachers from Lehman’s Noyce STEMELL program.

Lehman College School of Education congratulates New World High School and everyone involved in their students’ success.
