College Point to College Ready

Our Core Belief

It is our core belief at P.S. 129 that through a commitment to educational excellence, in a secure and supportive environment, the P.S 129 community will inspire students to become lifelong learners and to develop a strong sense of self-worth and respect. We facilitate scientific discovery, artistic creativity, and the use of technology. We respect different learning styles and encourage students to become independent thinkers and responsible citizens in a diverse world. Our motto is “Children can…”, encouraging children to never give up and realize that they have not mastered something ‘yet’. We encourage a growth mindset and the fact that we all make mistakes and can learn from them.

2019-2020 Instructional Focus

We will build teacher capacity to strengthen core instruction, which includes opportunities for student engagement, discourse (discussion) and problem-solving skills.

You will see students talking, working in groups, trying to solve problems in mathematics and using text evidence in reading and writing.
