PS 34 Mission Statement

At PS 34 we are committed to the academic success of every child. The school’s mission is to teach a rigorous academic curriculum, complimented by a wide range of enrichment opportunities, inclusive of the arts, in a supportive and safe environment.  Our students are challenged to become lifelong learners who are well prepared for the demands of the 21st century.  We believe the high expectations of today will nurture successful and productive citizens of tomorrow.  As a community of professional learners we empower our students to grow academically by teaching them critical and analytical thinking skills in full alignment with state and national standards. Supported by and in collaboration with families and community members, we expect students to aim high by addressing the individual needs of diverse learners and by strengthening the development of a well-rounded child who is fully prepared for their educational complexities beyond elementary school.
