Our Mission

Our mission is to educate the whole child, develop his/her self-esteem, social responsibility, sense of community, values, mental and physical health, citizenship, and instill a lifelong love of reading and learning. We will accomplish our mission through cooperative planning both short and long-term, parent and community involvement, meaningful staff development, and respect for all members of the P.S. 56 community. It is our goal to make our school an exciting place to learn and work.
