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:


 It’s incredible how fast time flies, we have less than 40 days of learning here at IS 339. It’s very important for your child to keep attending school. By making school attendance a priority it will help your children to learn the good work and study habits that will serve them well now and throughout their lives.

 Attendance is extremely important. Your child cannot learn if they are not here each and every day. If you get a phone call from our school messenger, please realize that we want to make sure that you are aware of the student’s absence or lateness. It is our goal to work with you on making sure that your child is in school every day. 

 8th grade parents you have less than 36 days until graduation and time is running out to pay for your child senior dues.

It’s a beautiful experience and we don’t want your child to miss it. If you have any question or will like any additional information, feel free to contact with Ms. Barry @ (718) 583-6767 EXT 3180.

 Parents also be advised that Saturday academy is running for all 8th grade students only. Saturday academy hours are from 8:30am to 1pm. We are focusing on Science State test that the students are taking on May 22nd -June 6th
