VISION: P.S. 23’s vision is to inspire, guide, assist and support our school community (students, parents, paraprofessionals and professionals) to work together to develop and provide quality education.  In doing so, we acknowledge the need for independence and mutual accountability.  Our goal is to educate all of our children to achieve their maximum potential.  We recognize and celebrate our unique differences while focusing on the development of academic skills, creativity, responsibility and citizenship.

MISSION:  In accordance with our school’s vision, we are dedicated to creating life-long leaders and learners.  It is our responsibility to insure that every student has the necessary literacy, mathematical, technological and content area skills, as well as leadership skills to help him/her become active members in the community and 21st century globalized economy. Our mission includes on-going communication between staff, parents and students to inform them of students’ progress on the road to reaching higher standards and being prepared college, career, and life ready individuals.
