Students at PS 79Q learn in a nurturing environment that promotes higher-level thinking, problem solving, and self-reliance. Our mission is to educate the whole child, foster curiosity and creativity, and prepare students for college and beyond. The P.S. 79 staff, families and students work together to make sure that all students can become lifelong learners, risk takers and problem solvers driven by high expectations and a rigorous curriculum and strong school community ties.
