Mission Statement

The Mission of PS 199 is to instill a life-long love of learning and to foster self-esteem in every child. In addition, we strive to work with parents to meet the social, emotional and educational needs of all children so that they will be able to meet the challenge of their future college and career aspirations. We feel that literacy is the foundational skill in a well-rounded education, which is essential in order for children to become contributing citizens of our communities, country and world.
