Building bridges of excellence for every student, every day

Mission Statement

The Peekskill High School library program prepares students to become informed citizens who participate in the democratic process. Our main goals include empowering students to advocate for themselves and their communities, preparing students for both academic and career environments, and exposing students to diverse worldviews through knowledge of how to access and evaluate information. We also strive to instill a lifelong love of reading and and an interest in exploring the world around them.
