PS169's Mission Statement

PS 169 is dedicated to creating a nurturing and intellectually
 enriched  environment that develops each child's unique
 capabilities in  a home-school environment.
It is our goal for all children to foster a love of learning,
to stimulate critical thinking, to encourage a caring and compassionate
school community, and to prepare the leaders of tomorrow.
We do this by embracing cultural diversity, building understanding and
tolerance of differences, fostering creativity, developing self esteem,
 employing multiple teaching strategies, integrating the arts,
 exhibiting an elevated degree of professionalism, maintaining high
expectations and applying consistent standards for all children,
 encouraging active parent guardian participation, and involving
the entire school and community in a commitment to excellence
 in all  we do for children.
At PS 169, we cultivate children to coexist in the garden of life
 while displaying their singular characteristics.

       Common Core Standards

New York State recently adopted a new set of learning standards known as Common Core Standards. These standards will phase in gradually through 2015. The common core standards clearly lay out what students should know and be able to do at every grade to ensure they are college and career ready.

This year all New York City schools will  incorporate Common Core Standards into classroom assignments. For more information please click here
