Martin De Porres School

  • In the late 1960's, when the Christian Brothers were teaching at Mater Christi Diocesan High School in Astoria, starting a school like Martin de Porres or working with emotionally disturbed children were not pieces of their “life plan”.
  • They were comfortable teaching subjects like Religion, English and Physics.
  • They eventually moved on to become assistant principals, deans and moderators of athletic teams.
  • What appeared to be a simple request to assist poor students would lead them on an unexpected path.
  • Over a few years time, they and their colleagues would make one commitment after another that would lead them into the vanguard of special education in New York City.
  • We Teach all who have been entrusted to our care that they are lovable and worthwhile persons capable of making responsible choices based upon respect for themselves and for the other persons in their lives and capable of establishing relationships of trust among our diverse community of adults and peers.
  • With faith and zeal we seek to continually develop creative ways to touch the hearts and minds of the young people entrusted to our care both at home and around the world.
