Failure is not an option, because success is the only option! 



VISION: We will become a Level 3 and Level 4 school.

MISSION: To support and develop the entire school community so that all students are college-and-or career ready.  With foci on all populations of our students, teachers will engage collaboratively to ensure accelerated student learning through reflective practice and professional learning experiences. Holding high academic standards and expectations for every student inclusive of all cultures, races, religions, disabilities and or other life choices, we provide a safe learning environment where all students have and share their voice.  Following our guiding philosophy that every student deserves an effective teacher, we work tirelessly to seek out opportunities that will advance this belief.

Our goal is to increase the number of level 3 and 4 students by 10% in English Language Arts and Mathematics.



Dear Parents/Guardians & Families:


 Well June is finally here and all the hard work is about to pay off.  Congratulations to all the parents of the graduating class of 2019. As we end this scholastic year I would like to this scholastic year I would like to thank every one that attended all the parent association meetings through out the school year. It is with great pleasure that I find myself enjoying my job more everyday because of you. I have had the honor of working with some pretty terrific women and men this year. We had a great parent appreciation workshop in May. We had more than 120 parents that showed up to support the school. Our IS 339 Family would like to invite you all to our 8th Family day event on June 22th from 10am to 3pm in our wonderful School yard. Next year we will do so much more. Our goal here at IS 339 is to create an extended family. Together we will see our children grow and become all that we have planned for them. We cannot do this without you. Please assure that your child continues reading during the summer. Summer reading is very important for your child’s education. Please continue to support your children as the months ahead will be challenging and exciting. Remember that as parents we are our children’s first teacher. They learn by example. Please make sure that you have a safe summer and always keep an eye on your children as we all know summers in NYC are fun but also dangerous.
