P.S. 173 Mission Statement
At P.S.173, our children will receive a top-notch education that focuses on rigorous individualized academics, solid enrichment and social development in order to move on to secondary and post-secondary education successfully; taking into account that parents, guardians, families and the community have an abundance of knowledge to offer in regards to supporting their children’s education. Students, staff, families and the community will feel welcomed, nurtured, respected and encouraged to participate in school functions and assist in the development of our students.
P.S.173 is a place where children will have multiple opportunities to succeed. Students will want to come to school every day because of the support and nurturing they receive, the welcoming environment they encounter, and the fun they have as they are engrossed in rigorous and hands-on learning activities. Students are immersed in a variety of academic programs and engaged in several enrichment activities such as music and art. Our students receive individualized small group instruction daily.
The objective of the P.S.173 curriculum is the development of proficient students who are self-directed critical thinkers.
P.S.173 is in motion to deliver a technology rich environment. In an effort to prepare students for a real world environment where technology is a necessity, students are learning to be tech-savvy.
