Our School Mission and Vision

Our Mission

We are a diverse school community dedicated to achieving excellence in education.  We will address the emotional and academic needs of our students by providing a nurturing environment that fosters high expectations.  Through various instructional programs and strategies such as balanced literacy, constructivist math, thematic units and learning through the arts, our students will become critical thinkers and life long learners.

Our Vision

At Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Elementary School, our vision is to prepare all students to be life long learners who will be intrinsically motivated to achieve their goals.  The students will be respecful, responsible and possess a positive self-image of themselves, their family and community.
