Welcome to PS 78, the Stapleton Lighthouse Community School,  located in the heart of Stapleton.
"PS 78 is GREAT"

The mission of Public School 78 is to create an educational community where the model of practice and public performance will be used across curricular and extracurricular activities so students can show the skills, habits, attitudes, concepts and knowledge that lead to an individual understanding of how to be successful in all areas of their lives.


P.S. 78's Instructional Focus for the 2015- 2016 School Year 
Instructional Foci 

A.

IF our teachers and teacher teams consistently use data and daily formative assessment to revise lesson plans, THEN our students will be engaged in classrooms with multiple entry points for all students to increase their academic achievements.

B.

IF grade level teams effectively collaborate, plan and a share a common set of beliefs on how students learn, THEN all students will be engaged in student led discussions, self-assessments, accountable talk, protocols and become reflective independent learners. 

C.

IF instruction is rigorous, motivating, student led and aligned with the CCLS, THEN students will be actively engaged in meaningful activities that provide higher levels of critical thinking skills, ownership and accountability.


Our Principal, Louis Bruschi, Assistant Principals, Daniel Singleton, and Jodi Contento, classroom teachers, support staff, along with a dedicated PTA, SLT and PAC work collaboratively to make PS 78 a wonderful and positive learning environment for our students.
