Mission Statement

P.S. 164 Mission Statement

At P.S. 164, we believe that education should be fair and equitable, anti-racist and anti-bias. Students and staff are entitled to be in a setting that allows openness of speech and thoughts regarding all aspects of their identity. This school community strives to create environments where candid and honest conversations are welcomed and encouraged. We will always keep an open mind and we believe that it is okay to change our opinions when we learn something new. We are open to consistently learning and forming new ideas about various cultures. Our goal is to implement systems which allow change and progress to be a consistent tool in staff and student growth. Staff provide the tools in order for students to be successful. Every student can learn, just not in the same way.
