Mission Statement at PS 163Q
The Mission of P.S. 163Q is to engage all students in learning experiences that build upon their strengths and natural curiosities. We believe that each and every student is special and unique, enabling us to better understand and nurture their gifts.Through a partnership with parents and teachers we will create an engaging, rigorous environment where students are able to talk about their thinking, challenge their ideas, grow new ideas, and put their thoughts into action. Through this collaboration, we are creating a body of learners that will have the skills to be the change agents of today’s world. Our students will “USE THEIR MINDS TO CREATE CHANGE”.
