As a responsive community of parents and educators, PS287 recognizes our ethical responsibility to promote learning that ensures the future of our children. We are concerned about how our children are growing up. Therefore, as our children continue to evolve, we will adapt our educational practices in order to give children experiences that will foster student achievement and independence. It is our purpose to expose children to a variety of academic, cultural, artistic, athletic and technological learning experiences. P.S. 287 students will know that we want them to learn, for it will be evident that we have set the stage for exploration beyond the confines of the classroom. At P.S287 we intend to close the achievement gap by educating our children to become leaders of tomorrow.
