The Helen Keller School Community is committed to creating a climate which promotes achievement of high academic standards and the pursuit of excellence. Our risk-free learning environment ensures that all children will be motivated to face the challenges of the new millennium and become independent, critical thinkers, problem-solvers and lifelong learners. P.S. 153 students will learn to be caring individuals that develop an appreciation and respect for cultural diversity. Through cooperation and participation of parents and the school community, our children will become productive citizens and leaders of tomorrow.
