Battery Park City School

Our Mission

The students of the Battery Park City School are competent, capable, curious, and caring individuals who discover the unique contributions they will draw upon as they become responsible members of society.  Our students are lifelong learners prepared to engage in the work of creating new paradigms for an increasingly inclusive and sustainable world.  

To make this vision a reality, we nurture the academic, emotional, social, and physical well-being of each child by building on their intrinsic strengths.  The school community works collaboratively, ensuring that each student has a voice and is represented in the curriculum, in order to create an environment of equity and respect for all.
