Our Mission Statement

At PS 222, we celebrate cultural, ethnic and academic diversity. We believe that maintaining high expectations for all of our students, including English Language Learners and Special Education students, is critical to their success. We are dedicated to the education of the whole child and strive to create an atmosphere in which all students are nurtured emotionally and receive the support necessary to excel academically. We recognize that all children bring their own templates of individual talents and learning styles.

At PS 222, we incorporate the Common Core Standards and Habits of Mind into every area of the curriculum in order to foster academic excellence in all of our students. It is our firm belief that by maintaining academic rigor in a respectful and nurturing environment, we will help all of our children to reach their fullest potential.
