Mission Statement

At PS 527, the East Side School for Social Action, we...

  • believe that a focus on creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration will best prepare our students to be leaders and global citizens.

  • participate in social action projects each year, highlighting our duties as citizens of the world to make our planet a better place for all of its inhabitants.

  • understand that students are individuals and deserve an individualized, differentiated learning experience.

  • educate the “whole child” because, in addition to academic support, children need guidance with their social-emotional development.

  • collaborate with staff, students, families, and community members.

Together, with a shared mission, we will prepare today’s students with the 21st Century academic and social-emotional skills they need for success tomorrow.
