About Us


P.S. 85’s mission is to positively impact student learning experiences on a day-to-day basis as we collaborate and embrace knowledge of self as instructional leaders of our classrooms and our students in their scholarly pursuit. 


At P.S. 85, we take pride in fostering a school environment where students are immersed in a well-rounded and culturally mindful education that is safe and welcoming.  In our school community, we value student voice and prioritize student needs by building and nurturing positive relationships as an agency to a prominent education. We set great expectations of ourselves to reach great expectations of our scholars.


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
