School Mission Statement
Equity, Expectations, and Excellence
We, at PS 58R, The SS Columbia School, will provide a supportive and intellectually challenging learning environment designed to create lifelong learners. This will be accomplished through a comprehensive literacy and mathematics curriculum with a focus on critical thinking, problem solving and writing. Focus is also given to the relevance of Science and Technology in our world. The varied needs of children will be addressed through relevant enrichment and intervention activities. We realize each child deserves respect, encouragement, and the opportunity for creative expression. Our extensive Project Arts Initiative offers the venue for all students to express their talents and abilities. The School Student Leadership Program fosters leadership and conflict resolution skills to prepare children to become responsible and productive citizens. We will develop a community of learners who value themselves and have an appreciation for the diversity of others. Our School Leadership Team, PTA and parental outreach solidify the formation of a strong learning community.
