It’s Academic is proud to announce that after a successful recruitment campaign, Ms. Kathy Fine has been appointed the new Principal of Colegio Atid, a Jewish-community K-12 school located in Mexico City. Ms. Fine is currently the CEO of NY Reads, a non-profit which she founded.
John Becker, It’s Academic’s managing director stated, “Colegio Atid is a very prominent Jewish community school in Mexico City, and their instruction is mostly in English but also includes some Hebrew and Spanish. We actually introduced three finalist candidates from Israel, New York and Canada, so it was truly a global search. We’re very pleased that Kathy Fine from New York turned out to be a tremendous fit for the position.”
Ms. Fine is an experienced school principal and administrator who has specialized in language acquisition and operating international programs in the US. As Principal of Brooklyn International High School, she oversaw a graduation rate increase from 60% to 80%, with a 90% college acceptance rate, and her term as School Leader at Manhattan Bridges High School witnessed marked increases in attendance rates and Progress Report grades.
