Who We Are
We are dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing environment in which all children will achieve academic excellence and develop social responsibility. We are located in the East Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York with a student population of 539, serving students from Pre-kindergarten to Grade 5 in a child-centered stimulating learning environment.
What We Believe In
Our vision is to promote strong home/school partnerships which will enhance our students’ abilities to respect, appreciate and embrace all cultures. Through differentiated instruction and an enriched curriculum, we strive to maximize opportunities in order for every child to experience success. We endeavor to become “creative” with how to remediate struggling students in order to ensure students’ progress and success in all domains of development.
PS 219 stands as a perfect example of how a whole can become more than the sum of its parts. Although we have staff that varies in experience and cultural background, we share a common vision that focuses our efforts on improving student achievement. Our shared experiences result in a school culture built around the joint responsibility of community and school to educate our children so that they may become college and career ready.
Our Motto, “Achieving Excellence” expresses this commitment and is representative of our school culture.
