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:



I Hope you have been enjoying the unusually mild winter that the east coast has been enjoying recently. Unfortunately, Punxsutawney Phil, the world's most famous prophesying groundhog, has seen his shadow and is predicting six more weeks of winter.  No matter what the weather is outside, the learning environment at I.S. 339 is hot with students whose minds are working overtime.  On January 25th, the second marking period came to an end, we encourage Parents to check on their Child's report-cards. We will distribute report cards on February 15th.


The third marking-period is an optimal time for learning here at I.S. 339.  All students will be taking the NYS ELA examination on Tuesday April, 2nd, and Wednesday April 3rd the NYS Mathematics examination on Wednesday, May 1st & 2nd. There are approximately less than 60 days until both of these critical exams will be taken Please encourage your child to continue to take advantage of the supplemental academic programs I.S. 339 has to offer. We hold Saturday Academy from 8:30am-1:00pm. If you have questions about your child’s involvement in any of our academic programs, please contact your child’s assistant principal, guidance counselor or homeroom teacher at 718-583-6767
