Our Mission

As a responsive community of parents and educators, P.S. 287 recognizes our ethical responsibility to promote learning that ensures the future of our children. As our children continue to evolve, we will adapt our educational practices in order to give children experiences that will foster student achievement and independence. It is our purpose to expose children to a variety of academic, cultural, artistic, athletic and technological learning experiences. We will provide innovative, individualized instruction that addresses student's academic and social emotional learning styles, cultivate independent thought, promote the building of character and enable students to contribute their ideas locally and globally. We will comprehensively develop citizens who will be the innovative leaders of tomorrow.
