This is MSPA NYC

Welcome to the Middle School Principals' Association, as we enter our 65th year of membership, as an organization of dedicated NYC principals, we continue to support the idea to educate, innovate, and inspire 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. 


For that reason, the MSPA, continues to welcome all Middle School principals from all NYC boroughs, and strives to expand their commitment to professional development, professional learning, and sharing of knowledge. The greatest resource we have is sharing our experiences and knowledge with each other.


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