Mission Statement

At Intermediate School 78, The School for Architectural Design and Innovative Technology, our mission is to provide all students with     engaging, rigorous, and technology based learning opportunities, as well as meaningful enrichment opportunities that prepare them for  

 college and career readiness, in alignment with the Common Core Learning Standards.  In partnership with staff, families, and the community, we foster the emotional, social and intellectual growth of our students in order to prepare them to reach their full academic potential            and become outstanding citizens.

We are working to make this website easier to access for people with disabilities, and will follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. If you need assistance with a particular page or document on our current site, please contact

Dorothy D'Aleo at (718) 763-4701 ext. 1260 or DDaleo@schools.nyc.gov to request assistance.

Instructional Focus

Teachers will utilize online academic enrichment programs, (Achieve3000 & Waggle Math) to collect data that informs instruction, which        will lead to improved students’ ELA and Math skills.  Ambassadors will attend offsite Professional Learning sessions to turn key information      in order to build content knowledge and teacher capacity.  We will expand our Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) to foster positive relationships and social growth.  Our enrichment clusters, as well as our embedded organizational skills program, will promote creativity        and collaboration, in support of college and career readiness and citizenship.
