The Public School 177 Mission and Vision Statements
School Mission: The mission of P.S. 177 is to instill a lifelong love of learning and to foster self-esteem in every child. In addition, we strive to work with parents to develop the social, emotional and educational needs of all children so that they will be able to meet the challenges of their future college and career aspirations. We feel that literacy is the fundamental skill in a well-rounded education, and is essential in order for children to become contributing citizens of our communities, country and world. .School Vision: Public School 177 is a unique school community committed to the intellectual, social and emotional growth of each of our students. We embrace diversity by nurturing strengths and talents to educate the whole child. In recognizing that all children learn in different ways, we believe that inquiry based learning and an arts integrated curriculum cultivates a more meaningful discovery of self, enhances prior knowledge, supports the understanding of difficult content and accelerates language development. Strengthened by the commitment of our parent community, we value parent participation and are dedicated to continuing strong partnerships between home and school. Our strong commitment to providing the faculty and staff with meaningful professional learning opportunity ensures the delivery of strong content resulting in continuously improved student outcomes.
