They are supported by approximately 30 classroom teachers and support staff, who are all hard at work to make P.S. 96 Scholars Academy a wonderful and positive learning environment for all children.
The Mission of the P.S. 96 community is to provide a child-centered and challenging learning environment that fosters critical thinking and is responsive to student's multiple needs and learning styles. We will raise students' literacy and mathematics levels to meet and surpass New York City and State Standards.
