Our Mission Statement
Children learn by interacting with their environment; the natural and social worlds that surround them. Our school will build upon this interaction by creating confident learners who pose questions, explore problems, and communicate solutions.
To nurture each child's innate curiosity, the Queens College School for Math, Science, and Technology expands the traditional boundaries of schools and classrooms so that children explore ideas. Student inquiry into the natural and social worlds is based on direct experience and the integration of thinking
across the curriculum. Children will become readers and writers, scientists and mathematicians, scholars and athletes, and artists of all disciplines in a safe and child-centered community.
Teacher teams will implement effective formative assessment practices that are aligned to the
common core learning standards, and utilize assessment data to support rigor in the school
community. Students will self-assess and monitor their own progress.
Equity in Education aims to create a free digital educational network that will provide access to technology, resources and community for the NYCDOE population in order to foster fairness for all learners. This project is beginning at PS/IS 499. From here, the possibilities for growth and transformation are endless.
