Welcome to The High School of Applied Communication. I am here to advise your child with everything ranging from graduation requirements to college applications. While maintaining direct communication with parents, I update student transcripts, records, pre college enrollment, credit evaluation, and countless other aspects of your child's success. I am also bilingual fluent in Spanish to assist the community with questions and answers.

I am here Monday - Friday 8:15am-3:30pm. My office is located in room 517B on the 5th floor at 30-20 Thomson Avenue, Long Island City NY, 11101.
