Principal's Message

Dear Parents:

Welcome to Maspeth High School! My name is Khurshid Abdul-Mutakabbir and I will be your child’s principal this year. I enter this school year with great enthusiasm and desire to begin a rich classical education with our students. Our mission is to lead students on the pathway to become lifelong learners with strong character through an understanding of classical liberal arts, and empirical sciences. We implement an interdisciplinary, college preparatory curriculum that will train our students to become critical thinkers and develop their social and emotional intelligence.

We are proud to provide a variety of courses which will produce intelligent, literate, curious young adults. Our art, music, theatre, and athletic programs provide many opportunities for students to develop talents and explore areas of interest that contribute to a comprehensive high school education. 

We understand that care and trust are fundamental to learning, personal growth, and quality relationships. By putting these qualities into practice, students and staff ensure that together we achieve success. Maspeth High School has high expectations of its students. We firmly believe that high expectations and appropriate supports empower students to be responsible for their own behavior and learning.

I look forward to working with you and your child this year! 


Khurshid Abdul-Mutakabbir
