    About us

    This is MSPA NYC

    Welcome to the Middle School Principals’ Association, as we enter our 67th year of membership, as an organization of dedicated NYC principals, we continue to support the strong innovative education that inspires all students to see beyond the disciplines as a separate entity, but instead combined them as cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world application.

    The Middle School Principals’ Association is a principal advocacy group that leverages the knowledge of its members in the field along with experts at the university level to provide principals with rich and intensive professional development opportunities such as our annual conference, annual retreat and monthly meetings for professional enrichment.

    We believe in collaboration and networking to support members in reaching their desired performance in their professional lives. Our consistency and dedication to educators at the middle school level is a reflection of that passion and adherence to our goals.

    In our partnership with principals, MSPA continues to welcome all Middle School principals from all NYC boroughs, and strives to expand their commitment to professional development, strong networking connections and sharing of best practices. Our greatest resource is each other sharing our experiences and knowledge. We feel pride that our organization builds on team spirit and the idea that we are never alone and can find answers within our membership.

    Please see our schedule, for a list of meetings, times, and locations.

    Hope to see you soon.

    In Unity,

    Dr. John Barbella
    MSPA President
