School Mission

 P.S. 229 will be a safe environment where a love of learning will be nurtured in every child. Students will be encouraged to be academic risk-takers; inquisitive, independent and critical thinkers; and confident, responsible citizens. Our school will be strengthened by a strong partnership with the parent community and our rich cultural diversity. Our teachers will have the opportunity for professional growth and will work collaboratively with all stakeholders. We will prepare students to be technologically literate and appreciate the arts. We will facilitate the various learning styles of all students to assure they reach the highest standards possible.
