Our Mission

PS 79 is a member of a "Community of Learners." We believe that all children can learn, and we strive to create a literate, nurturing, child-centered environment. We are committed to providing programs, which reflect developmentally appropriate learning strategies through an interdisciplinary approach. PS 79 fosters collaborative relationships through which both students and adults are encouraged to take risks, respect diversity, support higher level thinking skills, and maintain high standards.
