Welcome to the website of George C. Albano.
This site is intended to highlight the accomplishments and recipe for
success of an educator who, for over 27 years, has served as principal of
Lincoln Elementary School in Mount Vernon, New York.
"This is one of 4,000 schools in New York
state but why can't they all be more like this one [Lincoln School]?"
- Quote to News12-TV by NY State
Richard P. Mills who visited Lincoln
Elementary School on 11/15/04
This 810-student school has been recognized as one
of the only schools in New York State where test scores in all academic
subjects are equally as
high for minority as non-minority students. Lincoln Elementary has
successfully closed the achievement gap in all academic subjects to truly become a school
where no child is left behind.
"After 34 years in this profession, I can
state unequivocally that George Albano is one of the best principals in
this nation and that Lincoln Elementary School under his leadership is one
of the best elementary schools in the nation..."
- Ronald O. Ross of the
National Urban League 5/9/04
"If I could clone George Albano we
wouldn't have any achievement problem in this country in the public
