PS/IS 276 Mission Statement

The mission of PS/IS 276 is to provide a public education for grades pre-kindergarten through 8 that fosters the intellectual, social, creative, and physical growth of each student in a safe and nurturing environment. We strive to empower each student to achieve his or her greatest potential and inspire students to use that potential for the benefit of others and the world.


At PS/IS 276, we work to develop foundational knowledge and skills – reading, writing, mathematics, and critical thinking – to enable each student to engage in intellectual inquiry. We guide students in their exploration of the broader world through direct and meaningful experiences while reinforcing their responsibilities and connections to it.  In doing so, we strive to foster students' relationships with their peers, school, communities, and the natural world as we work together to create individual and shared knowledge. We promote the imagination as a crucial skill for conceiving the possible and the impossible, as we pose questions and solve problems. We also support growing bodies and growing minds by instilling healthy life habits including nutrition, physical exercise, and sports. Finally, as we recognize that learning happens both at school and at home, we seek to build strong partnerships with students and their families.
