PS 295 is a community that understands that students have both talents and challenges. We believe that each child has the potential to meet high standards. Our flexibility comes in creating individual plans that provide students with specific supports that help them meet the standards. By nurturing strengths and talents, as well as recognizing that all children learn in different ways, we believe that an arts integrated curriculum and a character development focus cultivates a more meaningful discovery of self. We strive to support students socially, academically, culturally and artistically by incorporating Universal Design for Learning in all areas of the students’ school life. Our strong professional development program provides ongoing learning and leadership opportunities for all staff members, while offering students an exemplar for becoming lifelong learners and leaders of the future.
