OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of PS 150 is to dare. We encourage our students to dare to be their best through the relentless pursuit of knowledge and self.
- We see students as wholistic individuals and we see learning as a continuous process of opening their minds to critical thought and creativity.
- We build a curriculum that encourages compassion, empathy, and accountability to empower each student to achieve their maximum potential in all aspects of life: academic, social, emotional, and physical.
- We foster a partnership between home, school, and community to enhance student success and prepare them to be leaders and responsible citizens.
At PS 150 we value Diversity, Aspiration, Respect, and Excellence. We DARE.
WHAT WE ARE
What sets our school apart from others in our neighborhood is our size. We are a currently a 3K – 5th grade school. We know all our children and are able to customize the school experience for every child. While our classes are heterogeneous, our talented staff differentiates instruction for each student so that all are being challenged, all are being encouraged to achieve beyond previous levels.
Our school is known for our gentle nurturing of each child. We have a full time guidance counselor on staff who works with teachers and children in going through the social and emotional challenges of the elementary school years.
Similar to other elementary schools in District 2, we offer a challenging and engaging curriculum. We employ balanced approach to learning literacy, a constructivist approach to learning mathematics, and an integrated approach to learning social studies, technology and science. Engaging in both hands-on projects and written work, children develop solid skills, in-depth understandings, and positive attitudes toward learning.
We also emphasize arts education and appreciation. In addition to having weekly art and music lessons, children at PS 150 study dance, architecture, puppetry, and story telling.
PS 150 has a vital, active PTA. Parents support the school’s mission through fundraising and community building.
