Mission & Vision

Mission Statement

P.S. 176 is a diverse, collaborative, Title 1 School-wide Project school community dedicated to achieving academic excellence for every child. Through a high quality standards-driven curriculum, a nurturing environment where every child can discover, explore and reflect on ideas and concepts, the development of civic, social and technological strategies necessary to contribute to a global community and the strong belief in creating a lifelong love of learning, we commit our children, our parents, ourselves and our resources.

Vision Statement

PS 176 envisions our school, as a professional community of learners, where all members – students, parents and staff are engaged in learning. Our shared focus is to empower all students with high academic skills, positive and varied social experiences and civic responsibilities that will enable every child to participate as a contributing member of a democratic society. We believe that every child must have the opportunity to communicate effectively, think critically, possess technological skills for an informational society, gather information to make intelligent decisions and have the necessary job skills to earn a decent wage – this commitment begins at the elementary level of formal schooling. To this end, we commit ourselves and our resources to provide every child entrusted to our care a strong academic foundation and lifelong love of learning.
