Our Mission

At P.S. 62 we have a common understanding that all children can learn with varying scaffolds. Our aim is to get to know students well and provide the teaching-learning environment that will help each one to do the best they can. We have high expectations for polite behavior, academic rigor and participation in the arts. We will use current technology tools to help our community learn and communicate in a global network. We will promote the values of integrity, responsibility, accountability, teamwork and appreciation of diversity.
