Returning to School

"How to be Smart and Safe"

P.S. 85 Mission/Vision

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 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 which values and embraces knowledge and strives for great expectations on a day-to-day basis for every student.

P.S. 85 Instructional Focus

If educators know every student well and design small group learning opportunities, students will take greater ownership of their learning and increase student voice in the classroom.
