Our Mission

P.S. 291's mission is to create an environment which is child centered and nurturing, recognizing the cultural diversity of our community. In partnership with our students, parents, staff and community, there is the belief that all students can meet high standards of excellence and challenge. We believe that the role of the school and the home is to provide a climate that enhances the students' cognitive, creative and social growth, thereby increasing the child's potential for success.
