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.
Our technology room enables us to provide instruction to all constituents in computer technology. During the school day, two guided reading specialists work with small groups of students in classrooms. There are numerous academic after school programs for students.
A Health Center addresses the physical needs of the students; Guidance Dept. provides peer mediation. Students participate in various committees and awards activities. We currently have one full time art specialist and music specialist; some of our school highlights include an art show, holiday music.
