    Hi there!  I'm Emarilix Lopez, Principal and founding member of The Metropolitan Soundview High School.  Starting this school has been the accomplishment of a life-long dream to establish a school committed to supporting Bronx students reach academic and personal success.  I have worked in New York City public schools for 16 years as a teacher of American History, English as a New Language, Assistant Principal and Principal.   We're a young school doing mighty great things as a result of having a highly collaborative staff.  We are able to provide our students the experience of attending a large school with the personalization of a small learning community.

    Hi everyone! I am Ms. Gellis and I am the Assistant Principal at The Metropolitan Soundview High School.  I attended Emory University in Atlanta for college, and despite earning a BA in Economics, I immediately realized I wanted to be a teacher.  Upon graduation, I returned to New York City to attend St. John’s University for my Graduate Studies in teaching.  I worked as a Math and Economics teacher in Manhattan and am now very excited to be a part of the MSHS family.  Nothing makes me prouder than being part of a community that works day in and day out to support its students academically, socially and emotionally.  The collaborative and dedicated team at MSHS holds not only its students but also ourselves to the highest of expectations, resulting in a community of individuals ready to go out into the world to create positive change.
