Our Mission

The mission of P.S. 42 is to increase academic excellence for all children by providing programs which will nurture and support their strengths and needs. Our goal is to implement a school-wide policy which will meet the NY State and NYC Standards for Education and create a learning environment that will boost all of our students to grade level and above. Our purpose is to build and improve morale by instilling in our students, staff and parents a sense of respect for ourselves along with an appreciation for the diversity of the multicultural society in which we live, work and learn.
