PS 79 strives to prepare students to become self motivated, lifelong learners and responsible citizens who can thrive and lead in a rapidly changing, diverse world.
Our mission is to provide real world learning opportunities that educate the whole child. Our diverse learners explore academic interests in conjunction with experiences in the arts, science, technology, and physical education. We maximize student progress through data driven instruction while engaging students in critical and higher-order thinking. Our professional and motivated staff, in partnership with families and the community, provides a nurturing environment and encourages children to achieve their maximum potential academically, emotionally, and physically.
