Along with our devoted parents and community; the mission of P.S. 48 is to provide a safe haven where the whole child is nurtured with academic opportunities. Using data to drive our standards based curriculum, we will support the needs of all students and guide them through their campaign to become life long learners. Children will be encouraged to discover their own unique voices through writing and immersion in our rich arts programs using proven technologies.
