Dominick Silla, Principal

Dominick J. Silla is the Principal of SIXTEENTH AVENUE SCHOOL.

He has held this position since the fall of 2004. September 2017 marks Mr. Silla's 14th school year which holds classes from preschool - grade 5.  There are approximately 500 students in our prek - 5 classrooms.

Our new integrated preschool class for September 2017 now accepts regular education preschoolers on a tuition basis. Please contact the board of education office, at 201.796.8700 @ "#2323" to inquire about this recent program addition to our district, as a registration lottery may be initiated through the office of the Director of Special Services.

Prior to working at Elmwood Park Public Schools, Mr. Silla was an elementary principal in West Milford, NJ.  He also served as a teacher at the Maywood Montessori School, River Dell Regional Middle and High Schools in River Edge and Oradell, NJ, the Michelangelo Middle School #144 of the public school district 11 in the Bronx, NY, and at River Vale Public Schools in River Vale, NJ.

Mr. Silla looks forward to meeting the needs of the community after referendum projects came to a close in 2017. Many updates included new windows and doors and well as improvements to our HVAC system at the school.

Since 16th Avenue School has housed close to or over 500 students the last few years, our support services such as OT, PT and speech services continue to grow as we meet the challenges of each school year.

Please contact the main office at (201) 796-8700 @ "# 2992" with any questions or concerns.  Thank you.
