Our Mission

The staff and families of P.S. 198 are dedicated to creating a working partnership committed to providing students with the best education in a safe, nurturing and academically rigorous environment.  We believe that children learn in different ways, therefore we offer a variety of learning opportunities based on standards-driven instruction and on-going assessment designed to enable our students to realize their full potential.

As a community of learners, we strive to instill a strong work ethic in our students so that they can achieve academic excellence and become independent learners and critical thinkers.  Our commitment to educate students with special needs in the least restrictive environment and least intrusive manner possible is reflected in a Collaborative Team Teaching model.  We provide our Second Language Learners with rich language experiences designed to ensure individual successes.

Through a cooperative learning environment, students learn to develop respect for diversity, to be self-reflective and become contributing members of society.  Our staff is actively involved in defining and redefining what constitutes quality instruction.
