James Nicotri, Principal Manhattan Center for Science and Mathematics High School.

Dr. Candice Chiavola and Ms. Quinde of Manhattan Center for Science and Math has been recognized by the Yale Office of Undergraduate Admissions as a recipient of the 2022 Yale Educator Award. The Yale Educator Recognition Program recognizes outstanding educators from around the world who support and inspire their students to perform at high levels and to achieve excellence. Of this year’s 385 nominees, who represent 43 states and 28 countries, 80 teachers and 32 counselors were selected to receive the award. Matriculating students are invited to nominate high school educators, and a committee of Yale admissions officers reviews each nomination individually and designates recipients. In September, the winners were sent their awards with congratulatory letters, and administrators of the high schools were notified of their achievements.
