The mission of P. 77K is to provide a firm foundation in a supportive nurturing environment for all students. Our goal is to foster life-long learners who will reach their highest potential in school, at home, in the community and into adulthood.

We accomplish this by identifying the learning styles of the individual, focusing our instruction on functional, standards based learning, and giving students an appropriate way to communicate their needs and wants.

We teach students appropriate behavior and provide students with training and job opportunities for community based employment. We teach life skills needed for our students to live as independently as possible in their community.

We develop the whole individual.

Our Community

The Park Slope District, centering about the Grand Army Plaza entrance to Prospect Park at the intersection of Flatbush Avenue and Eastern Parkway, has been since the mid-nineteenth century Brooklyn's "Gold Coast." In the quiet streets off the plaza are rows of residences that rival the mansions on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue. Around the plaza itself, and towering above the huge Soldiers' and Sailors' Memorial Arch, are tall apartment buildings, a solid bank of which extends down Eastern Parkway opposite the new Central Building of the Brooklyn Public Library and the Brooklyn Museum. Behind the latter are the grounds of the Botanic Garden, separated from Prospect Park by Flatbush Avenue. The broad, tree-lined parkway, leading straight to the arch, recalls the Champs Elysées.

Bounded by Flatbush Ave to the north and the Prospect Expressway to the south, this old time Irish & Italian neighborhood of family-run stores is now sprinkled with chic cafes, boutiques and antique shops. Restaurants abound as well as numerous watering holes frequented by the singles set. Victorian brownstones give Park Slope its character, and great schools (both public and private) are especially attractive to young families.

Most will agree that Prospect Park, Park Slope's eastern boundary, is the neighborhood's greatest asset. Once a Revolutionary War battleground, Prospect Park is a haven for cyclists, hikers, and birdwatchers alike. Dogwalkers will appreciate the park's dog level drinking fountains, as well as the most liberal off-leash hours in the entire city.
