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.
The mission of The High School for Language and Diplomacy is to nurture the next generation of leaders who understand the art of communication and its vital role in diplomatically addressing the challenges they will face in an ever changing and evolving world.
Established in 2009, The High School for Language and Diplomacy is a vibrant, thriving community that welcomes students from all five boroughs and beyond. We focus on service learning, communication and bi-literacy.

Our Student Government and Senior Council are made up of a group of students who are charged with managing a wide range of school events, activities, programs, policies and initiatives around school. Members are elected by the student body, and are assigned to help carry out and promote activities that are of interest to our students.
