The community of the Spuyten Duyvil School, P.S. 24, recognizes that our children are our future. Our mission, therefore, is to prepare them to assume their role as contributing members of society. We accept that each child is an individual with varied needs. To this end we will provide the opportunity for every child to achieve his or her personal best in all areas of development - intellectual, social, emotional, and physical. Furthermore, we strive to encourage a respect for the similarities and differences that define our diverse population. We also acknowledge the need for our staff to continue to grow as professionals. Together parents, staff and children will promote the kind of safe, harmonious environment that ensures the actualization of that mission.
