Mentoring Excellence is an innovative NYC DOE leadership initiative in which highly successful principals nominate talented aspiring leaders from within their schools to open new district schools. If the aspiring leader is selected through the ONS application process to open a new school, the mentor supports the mentee, providing the new principal with the unique opportunity to be coached in what it takes to run a successful school and apply the vision and management skills that drive a school community to excellence.
