Our Mission

It is our mission to meet the educational needs of all our students in order to achieve academic excellence. We believe that students are individuals and they learn in a variety of ways. We continually use a diagnostic and prescriptive approach to education in order to meet the individual needs of all our students. In full collaboration with parents and the community, we foster the emotional, social and intellectual growth of our students in order to prepare them for their role as future leaders and outstanding citizens.

Special Programs

The CIG, Excelsior Academy and SPE programs, which comprise our Gateway Academy, offer academically accelerated curricula, as does the self-paced John Hopkins math program. Alternative Scholarship classes serve at risk students. Grade 6 classes are self-contained for all major subjects.

Extracurricular Activities

Extracurricular activities are a joint venture between IS 78 and the community. We have academic programs before and after school, a full after-school sports program, talent classes, homework helpers, and technology after school programs. A newly constructed dance studio houses specialized classes two days each week.

Our Community

We have a partnership with the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office, the Bergen Beach Youth Organization, PAL, ComWeb Association and Washington Mutual.
