About Our School
PS 94 is a Teachers College Collaborative K-5 elementary school located in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
We have a culturally and linguistically diverse student population of over 1200 students.
We provide a safe and supportive environment where the students, parents, teachers and support staff form a community of learners.
We are committed to achieving the highest standards of excellence through an academically rigorous curriculum for all students and through professional development for teachers.
We are committed to developing inquisitive, critical thinkers who will embark on a lifelong journey of learning. We believe in the value of developing citizens who are proud of their cultural heritage and become bicultural as well as bi-literate. As the global economy continues to open the markets of all nations, it is extremely important that we provide our future generations with the tools that they need in order to strive in this new economy.
It is our intention to assure that all of our students are offered the opportunity to become bicultural as well as bi-literate. To meet this goal we offer students the opportunity to enroll in our Dual Language Academy Connecting Cultures Through Languages. Instruction in these classes is offered in Spanish-English and Chinese-English in grades PreK-5. Spanish as a World Language is offered to students in grades K-2 and we have self contained ESL classes in grades K through 5.
Community partnerships are an integral part of our learning community and in addition to partnering with many Community Based Organizations such as Lutheran Medical Center, Salvation Army, Fifth Avenue Committee, Light and Love, The Brooklyn Chinese-American Association, National Urban Alliance, community leaders such as Congresswoman Nydia Velasquez, State Assemblyman Felix Ortiz and Councilwoman Sarah Gonzalez are active participants in the learning process at PS 94. Several institutions of higher education such as Teachers College, Columbia University and New York University are also active partners in our school programs.
