Our Vision

The High School for Language and Diplomacy provides a college-preparatory education committed to the intellectual, cultural and social growth of the students of New York City. We ensure a welcoming community of honesty and respect, develop the academic skills of students of all backgrounds through engaging instruction across content areas, and provide programs directed toward social-emotional health.  Our environment fosters service-oriented flexible thinkers through collaboration in and out of the classroom.  We strive to develop a sense of commitment in our students to themselves, their school, and the outside world, graduating proactive global citizens.
