The entire community has agreed to take an active role in promoting the school's mission, which is to create a community of learners that promotes high standards and outcomes for all students. They will be able to reason, evaluate, and communicate informed judgments that reflect problem-solving skills, and creative and critical thinking. Students' experiences, languages and cultures are at the core of the learning process at PS/MS 3. Our students will become independent, motivated and productive citizens who can participate successfully in a pluralistic society. Staff, parents and community partnerships will support these goals.
