P.S. 205’s mission statement is to provide students with a sound educational program, coupled with high expectations.  We aim to provide opportunities for each individual to develop a “Growth Mindset,” risk-free environment, in a community of learners where students love learning and embrace challenges.  The three driving principles in our approach to teaching and learning are to ensure that rigor, purpose, and engagement are the basis for all planning and instruction.  Our goal is to assure the curiosity and excitement students bring with them not only lasts, but also deepens as they journey through elementary school.
