P.S./I.S. 226 - Mission Statement The members of the P.S./I.S. 226 community are passionate about empowering students to achieve their fullest academic, social and emotional potential. Through rigorous, data-driven instruction, we are committed to providing a nurturing learning environment to ensure that all of our students are challenged and engaged. Promoting high standards and expectations, the teachers, administrators, families and the community equally share the responsibility for advancing the school's mission. Vision Statement At P.S./I.S 226, we believe that the greatest impact on student achievement results from having highly expert, inspired, and passionate teachers and school leaders working together to maximize the effect of their teaching on all students in their care.
We are raising money to support our wonderful music and art teachers as they lead our students through musical productions and art expositions. We need to soundproof the band room, purchase and maintain musical instruments, and purchase art supplies like paints and canvases.
P.S./I.S 226 is a pre-kindergarten through eight grade school serving over 1000 Brooklyn students of Italian, Spanish, Chinese descent including many new immigrants from Eastern Europe and the Middle East. We have an accelerated program for high performing students and fully include many students with special needs. We want to provide our students with a first class education that includes the arts.
Thanks for a successful elementary education and Mrs Lynnworth was my favorite teacher
My life started on the right track thanks to the dedicated teachers and PTA of PS 226. It's my chance now to help others. I hope you will do the same.
