The P.S. 39 family reflects the ethnic diversity of our vital community. In our unique, supportive and nurturing atmosphere, our children learn respect, tolerance, and appreciation for all people. We strive to enable all of our students (gen. ed., special ed., and ELL) to meet their potential in the 21st Century through a rigorous, standards-based curriculum and ongoing professional development. Cultivating our students' creative, analytical and critical thinking skills is at the heart of all curriculum areas.
