“Leading the Way Towards Excellence”

“Making Progress One Student At A Time”

M.S. 577 is devoted to the total development (educational, emotional, social and physical) of the adolescent child. Our students excel in all academic areas, with an extension to higher level educational credits in Mathematics, Science and Foreign Language. We encourage and build multicultural awareness and sensitivity in all children and adults, as well as a fundamental respect for self, others and the community. Our goal is to make the “school” experience the cornerstone of a student’s “lifelong” learning experience, which ensures a solid pathway to college. Real life situations are infused in our rigorous curriculum to promote social growth as well as prepare our students for their future. We see our parents as partners and encourage them to participate in learning with us and to maximize our “open door” policy to benefit themselves and their children.
