PS 96 ACT Mission Statement

In order to fulfill our vision of LIONS that ACT with PRIDE, The PS 96 School of the Arts, Collaboration and Technology at the Joseph Lanzetta Campus ACTs upon learning to contribute to the global community through developing Leaders Inspiring Optimism and Nurturing Success (LIONS). Using the PRIDE framework of Punctuality, Respect, Independence, Diligence, and Empathy, we foster a community that promotes student voice and choice, data-driven learning challenges, and collaborative problem solving.

Our children's education begins at home and is continued through a partnership between educators and community partnerships. We believe that all children will achieve when provided with experiences that challenge and build real-life connections. Our students are empowered to become full participants in their education. We believe that only through a rigorous, meaningful, comprehensive, and standards-based curriculum all students achieve their full potential.
