The founding principal, Peter Oroszlany, whom students call Mr. O, says his students face difficult family situations, but he and his staff are committed to helping them make good choices and build self-confidence.“The socio-emotional concerns students are facing are brutal and higher than ever,” he says. “I’m here for the journey.”
