The High School for Community Leadership (HSCL) is located in Jamaica Queens. Founded in 2010, HSCL is a limited, unscreened public school with students in grades 9–12. At HSCL, we believe that a sound high school education prepares students both for college and for life. At our school, you will find a small, yet diverse community of students and teachers who share a passion for learning, a dedication to personal growth, and a commitment to making the world a better place. Our mission is to encourage the development of scholar-activists; intellectually prepared to meet the academic challenges of post-secondary schooling, conscious of their responsibility to the larger world, and prepared to exercise leadership in the global community.
