SCHOOL-BASED POLICY FOR USE OF CELL PHONES, COMPUTING DEVICES, AND PORTABLE MUSIC AND ENTERTAINMENT ON SCHOOL PROPERTY.
The IS 204 School Wide Instructional Focus is to use assessment information to adjust teaching strategies, monitor student progress,
develop understanding and improve student learning.
Intermediate School 204 is a diverse school community made up of 6, 7, and 8th graders from the surrounding area, Long Island City, Queens. Our school is comprised of close to 600 students, and more than 70 staff who work hard every day to give our students the best opportunity to succeed. Our school is divided into two academies: Harvard and Princeton. Each academy represents a Mini "school within a school" maintaining the diversity and equitable representation of the original large school (Special Needs, General Ed, and ELL students). Our school motto is "There's No Place Like Holmes" where we stress literacy and technology throughout the entire school community. We have been investing heavily in technology, transforming our library into a multimedia center for the students, and wireless internet connectivity. We're well on our way to providing our children with the skills they will need to thrive in the 21st Century.
Our students come from the surrounding neighborhood of Long Island City and Astoria.
With the addition of Beacon, classes for adults as well as students, and many before and after school activities, our school is the cornerstone of the community, staying open six days a week until 10:00pm! This gives our students plenty of positive, supervised activities to keep them engaged after school hours.
With support of our community leaders, we are giving our children an opportunity to overcome obstacles and make their contribution to the world!
