Principal of city's ReStart Academy helps overage students, teen parents and drug addicts finish their studies

 


For more than 25 years, Joan Indart-Etienne has helped young students living on the margins of the academic world.

The diverse group includes overage students, teen parents and young people receiving treatment for substance abuse and mental health issues, all fighting to complete their education.

“I always thought they were overlooked,” Indart-Etienne, principal of the city’s ReStart Academy, said at her Hell’s Kitchen office. “People didn't pay attention to these students. I always felt like it was my moral obligation to help them.”
