Public School 121 is committed to promoting academic excellence and developing a community of lifelong learners through a balanced literacy program, integrated with the arts and sciences. We will identify and build upon our students' talent and abilities. Immersion into basic core values will enable our students to function as productive citizens. They are encouraged to be proud of their own culture and to respect others. We view education as a partnership of home, school and community. Thus, we will provide parents with the encouragement, education and support they need to become active participants in our school community. We will continue to tap into our community's resources to enrich our students' lives, and to assist us with assimilating our students into an adult society. We will come together each morning as a family and begin the day with our school pledge. This will remind us that our school is a caring community, committed to excellence.
