New principal an Eagle Point alum

Gabriel Barbato, Eagle Point Elementary School’s new principal, is returning to his roots.


Barbato grew up on Beacon Avenue and attended P.S. 27, now Eagle Point Elementary School. His appointment as Eagle Point’s principal was approved by the Albany Board of Education on July 13.


“It’s great to come back home, to come back to the place where it all started for me,” he said.


Barbato spent the last 16 years working in the Schenectady City School District, six as an administrator. He was assistant principal at Schenectady High School for five years and was the instructional supervisor for Howe Elementary School for the past year. He also taught fourth grade, sixth grade and was a technology specialist for the Schenectady district.


He earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education from The College of Saint Rose. He also earned his administrative certification at Saint Rose.


Please join the City School District of Albany in welcoming Gabriel Barbato home!


About Eagle Point Elementary School

The former Public School 27 was remodeled in 2005 as part of the City School District of Albany's sweeping plan to renovate or rebuild every elementary school. When the building reopened in January 2006, it was christened Eagle Point Elementary School in honor of its location near the highest point in the City of Albany.


Eagle Point serves approximately 300 students, and its small size allows teachers and administrators to create a cozy environment where programs can be individualized to meet students' specific needs. The school's mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that develops and promotes a diverse community of confident lifelong learners.
