PS 160 Mission Statement
All children at PS 160 will grow and learn with the help of our families, teachers and school community. Together we will work hard to achieve rigorous standards, celebrate each individual and create a caring environment which lays the foundation for college and career readiness.
PS 160 Vision
PS 160 is a community of learners who are committed to helping each child reach their personal best. Our educators seek opportunities to grow in their craft and share best practices. We recognize and value the contribution of our parents/guardians as fellow educators of their children. Our ongoing conversations are centered on our belief that every individual has the fundamental right to a quality education based on rigorous academics infused with the arts and an understanding of citizenship and community service.
PS 160 Instructional Focus
* Increasing student progress and reading ability through the use of Advanced Literacy strategies with a focus on multiple entry points and spotlighting academic language. Also, to ensure all students become fully fluent digital citizens.
* Utilizing an inquiry approach in grade and vertical teacher teams to improve their practice, creating a sustainable and authentic learning environment focused on student outcomes.
* Providing consistent opportunities for students to cultivate, practice and internalize social and emotional learning in ways that are developmentally appropriate and culturally responsive. We will ensure that our students are prepared for the next step in life.
