A Message from the Principal

Thank you for considering New Visions Charter High School for the Humanities II (HUM II).

Creating a school that caters to the specific needs of each student has been a lifelong dream of mine. Our curriculum does just that.

With an average class size of 25 and a 9:1 student-teacher ratio, we are able to provide individualized supports to all students and their unique learning styles and abilities including English Language Learners and students with Individual Education Plans.

We invite you to come and see HUM II for yourself. We look forward to meeting you soon.


Richard Gonzalez, Principal

Extracurricular activities

PSAL sports, including basketball, indoor/outdoor track, swimming, double dutch, tennis, softball and baseball. After-school activities and clubs are determined based on student interests.

Important things for parents to know

HUM II seeks students and families that are looking for a rigorous academic curriculum that teaches students history, language arts, math and science, through real-world experiences. Students are required to wear the uniform daily. They also have the advantage of an extended day for more learning time. Parents are expected to actively participate in their student’s life over the next four years.

About our campus

As a new school, we are delighted to be co-located on the Samuel Gompers High School campus. Built in 1933 as an industrial high school for boys, the beautifully designed facility includes science labs, art rooms, library, auditorium, fitness center and gymnasium, with opportuni- ties for performing and visual arts, sports and much more.
