P993Q is a District 75, K-12 school that provides a broad range of school-wide and individualized strategies to support our students’ academic and social growth. Our focus on student achievement is driven by the Citywide Instructional Expectations. We have created environments and systems that help our students achieve their greatest potential in academic and social skill competencies. Our Positive Behavior Support Program helps to create a motivating atmosphere within the school at large. Our theme, “Be Safe,” “Be Responsible,” “Be Respectful” is posted throughout our school buildings. This fosters positive student behavior which ultimately increases academic performance, while providing an atmosphere that motivates challenges and fosters high student expectations. Our teaching staff works collaboratively with our Related Service providers and support staff to create and implement new approaches toward classroom instruction. Through their individual knowledge, strength, professionalism and commitment, our staff provides our children with the highest level of teaching, caring and support relevant to meaningful instruction. As an integrative school, much emphasis is placed on providing extended social activities beyond the school day. With the help of our PTA and Parent Coordinator, we provide many extra-curricular activities after school and on weekends. These experiences allow our students the opportunity to participate in community based activities with peers, siblings and friends. Collaboration among administration, teachers, support staff, and parents makes P993Q an outstanding District 75 school.
