John J. Driscoll School, PS 16

A Community of Learners Excelling Together

Mission Statement

The faculty and staff will dedicate itself to the intellectual, social and emotional growth of all our children in our multi-cultural, multi-ethnic school.  We will provide the most update technological tools and the arts to provide challenging educational activities, and to foster mutual respect for all students and staff in a safe learning environment.

Parents and guardians provide the first learning experiences for our children and parental involvement will be an integral part of our partnership.

Our teaching strategies will empower our children to become lifelong readers and critical thinkers.  We are dedicated to providing a nurturing, caring environment where children are supported to develop self-esteem and a sense of responsibility.

Our expectations will be for every child to reach their highest potential through our home-school community.
