PS 56 Mission & Vision
At PS 56 Lewis H. Latimer school, we seek to develop a community of risk-takers, inquiring learners, and caring and compassionate leaders, who will grow and develop into active, internationally-minded citizens with a mission to positively impact the world.
All children can learn in an engaging, supportive, and challenging environment. All students will express themselves, engage in complex tasks, discuss their thoughts and feelings with their peers and teachers, and explore their talents through various means and experiences. Staff will educate the whole child by providing a variety of experiences, through literacy, the arts, sciences, mathematics, and physical education, so that all students can find their passion and talent in the world.
We believe that we are a community of learners and a community of leaders. We strive to change the world around us by becoming a leader in an area of our choosing and expressing our leadership through communication, collaboration, and our actions. Through these means, our school thrives and grows in a multitude of ways, and every day our students positively impact their lives and the lives of others.
