At P.S. 8 we believe that all children can and will learn in a nurturing, safe, risk-free environment where they are challenged to the maximum of their potential. We are committed to a school-home partnership through which students can meet high standards of excellence. This philosophy is extended to our entire and diverse school population, including our bilingual students, ESL students, special education students, resource room students, staff, parents and the community at large. The P.S. 8 mission is to provide an educational setting, where children will discover their own uniqueness, personal worth, and academic potential.
