Welcome to P.S. 142!
At P.S. 142, we strive to create a school community that exemplifies our values of equity and social justice. Because we believe that each child is an individual with unique strengths and needs, we provide instruction that reflects the diversity of our students. We are committed to creating an emotionally and academically supportive environment for all of our students, wherein students develop empathy for others and are challenged to achieve at high levels. We also believe that students learn best when they are the drivers of their learning. Students at P.S. 142 are encouraged to develop a sense of agency and excitement for learning that extends beyond the classroom.
See how students at P.S. 142 build community, learn to express their feelings, and resolve conflicts peacefully.
