Our Mission

    P.S.86Q is committed to fostering a caring community that promotes lifelong learners.  We focus on the needs of each child and instruction is driven by their needs.  We prepare the students through strong literacy and math programs, science, social studies, and technology curriculums which are aligned with the New York State standards.  Students are encoureged to not only meet the standards, but they are challenged to exceed the standards in all curriculum areas.  We have an expanded technology capacity including the latest in laptops, desktops, and Intelliboards.  P.S.86Q  encourages collaboration between home, school and community.  Queens Community House has had a longstanding relationship with us and they provide an after-school program for 125 of our students.
    Our vision is that all students will work together with their teachers and parents in the pursuit of academic and social excellence.
