Our Mission

I.S. 126 is committed to providing a safe learning environment where all students are held accountable and reach high levels of academic achievement.  We value open communication between parents, students, and teachers.  Our school fosters a spirit of lifelong learning and establishes a community of productive citizens.   We promote equity, intellectual curiosity, and creative thinking where the entire community, the arts and all cultures, are valued.

Our vision

Through the use of positive behavior interventions and restorative discipline we will make our students secure and safe.  Our school fosters success through exemplifying diverse life accomplishments.  Our students are provided with rigorous curricula, instruction, and assessment aligned with the State Standards while being exposed to the arts.  Professional learning for parents and teachers is the means to improving instruction, strengthening our relationships, and increasing the sense of belonging among our entire community.
