David Noah : Founding Principal
David started his career as a math teacher at Brooklyn's MS442, as an NYC Teaching Fellow. In 2006, he left to study at Yale Law School, where he argued a landmark school-reform case before the Connecticut Supreme Court, and also taught math at New Haven's Amistad High School.
After law school, he helped found KIPP NYC College Prep, and then went on to practice Labor and Employment law at RopesGray LLP. David left legal practice to join Success Academies as a Managing Director, where he managed principals and worked on the design of Success’s middle school program.
Eager to get back to working directly with kids and teachers, David went on to lead the largest Success middle school, SA Harlem East. Harlem East's results regularly ranked in the top 3% of schools in New York State and the school’s debate team ranked among the state's top teams.
After more than five years at Success, David left to found Comp Sci High with the belief that there are many paths to a successful life, and kids deserve access to all of them.
Eddy Mosley: Director of Computer Science
After graduating from Columbia University with a degree in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, Eddy was highly aware of two things: (1) he did not want to be an engineer, and (2) he wanted to empower kids to one day be able to have that choice. So, he started on his road to schooling.
He worked with the Harlem Children's Zone for three years, as a Student Advocate and Robotics Coach. From there, he joined Success Academy as a Lead STEM Teacher, teaching coding, leading hackathons, and running a robotics program.
He left to found Comp Sci High because he believes in the power of computer science to teach kids to think and empower them to succeed in school and in life.
Estefany Lopez: Director of Culture and Operations
Estefany emigrated from the Dominican Republic when she was five. Her family moved to New York when she was 15, where Estefany was one of only 11 graduates in her class. She went on to Fordham University, as the first in her family to attend college.
After college, Estefany led the operations team at two different Success Academy schools. She left to found Comp Sci High because she wanted to build a great school that was deeply connected to the community.
