Our Mission

It is our goal to foster a love of learning, to stimulate critical thinking, to encourage a caring and compassionate school community, and to prepare the leaders of tomorrow. We do this by embracing cultural diversity, building understanding and tolerance of differences, fostering creativity, developing self esteem, employing multiple teaching strategies, integrating the arts, operating school based businesses, exhibiting an elevated degree of professionalism, maintaining high expectations and applying consistent standards for all children, encouraging active parent participation, and involving the entire school and community in a commitment to excellence in all that we do. At PS 169 we cultivate children to coexist in the garden of life while displaying their singular characteristics.
