Visión de M.S. 51

M.S. 51 es una escuela intermedia abierta, diversa e inclusiva con una comunidad cuyo compromiso es asegurar que todos los niños se sientan apoyados y realizados en este momento decisivo de su vida. Con un contenido enfocado en estudios académicos exigentes, amplio estudio de las artes y aprendizaje socioemocional, nuestro plan de estudios sirve de apoyo a todos los estudiantes mientras desarrollan su conocimiento de sí mismos, de los demás y del mundo. Nuestro deseo es que todo aquel que atraviese nuestras puertas se sienta seguro, valorado y capacitado, y que al dejar la escuela esté consciente de que sus experiencias son importantes, que tiene voz propia y que puede utilizar esa voz para ser un ciudadano consciente y productivo en un mundo en constante cambio.
