The P.S. 138 School building is a safe, clean, nurturing environment into which all students, including ELL and Special Education, are welcomed and encouraged to attend punctually and regularly. Space, scheduling, programming, materials and curriculum are tailored to meet their needs and to raise the achievement of each student. Students, parents and staff assume the responsibility for every child's education. Administration, staff and parents collaborate on the School Leadership Team. Their goal is to devise, develop and assure the implementation of policy and/or program. They also seek out and research the availability of resources and services to ensure the availability of educational excellence. To reach high standards in all curriculum areas, it is our goal to make our students literate, culturally aware citizens of New York City. Additionally, we enrich and enhance students' learning through the arts.
