The mission of P.S. 174 is to build a community of diverse learners through varied educational experiences. Students are taught to their greatest potential through a rigorous academic and enrichment program. By recognizing and embracing the diverse cultures, nationalities and backgrounds represented in our school, students realize the importance of mutual respect and understanding. Civic responsibility is developed through service projects that reach out and build up the community. Parent involvement is a vital part of the school and complements the professional teaching the children receive.
