At P.S. 85, we take pride in fostering a school environment where students receive a well-rounded and culturally mindful education in a school climate that is safe and welcoming. In our school community, we value student's voice and prioritize student needs by building and nurturing positive relationships as an agency to a prominent education.
Our goal is to build a collaborative school culture that values and embraces knowledge and strives for great expectations on a day-to-day basis for every student.
If educators know every student well and design small group learning opportunities, then every student will take greater ownership of their learning and student voice will be evident in all classrooms thus creating independence and confidence
