André Del Valle is an educator of great experience and even greater heart, with a bone-deep belief in the potential of every student. He built his reputation as a dynamic community builder and educational innovator as Head of School at George Jackson Academy, an independent middle school for “academically-talented boys from underserved communities.” He joined George Jackson in 2004 as a fifth grade teacher, and was named Assistant Head of School three years later. In 2015, the board asked him to become Head of School. During his time as head he supervised a $1.6 million school building renovation and a $2 million dollar capital campaign. In 2019 André took the opportunity to become Head of Middle School at Poly Prep Country Day, leading a large and diverse division at one of New York City’s leading independent schools.
André will be only the fourth Head of School since MMFS was founded in 1984 and the first new leader in 30 years. We are honored that he has chosen to join our community, and delighted to welcome him to MMFS.

I am drawn to mission-driven schools, and it’s clear that MMFS’s commitment to the success of students with learning disabilities transforms lives.
