Overview

P.S. 112 is a community of learners that is dedicated to developing the whole child as an independent learner, thinker and problem-solver. The staff and the administrators believe that every student will be encouraged to maximize his/her ability to learn and achieve social and academic success. We recognize that education is fostered through cooperation among teachers, students, parents and community. We are committed to creating a rich learning environment that provides our students with the opportunity to develop physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially, and to become productive members of society.

Our Vision:
We see our school as a community of learners where all members of the staff, students, and parents support and accept each other, and meet the needs of individuals. It is the hope that all members of our community will become life long learners, be flexible, embrace change and become active participants in our school and society. Ideally, all members of the community will be responsible and accountable. The members will respect themselves and others. The members will develop critical thinking skills and the ability to communicate effectively.
