Global Community - PS 230’s Dual Language Vision is to create an environment where students will have linguistic and cultural competence in English and Spanish. This program is PS 230’s next step to help our students become global citizens in our ever changing global society.
Take Risks - Our unique dual language cohort will be encouraged to take risks in their learning in order to be college and career ready. Achieving fluency in both English and Spanish will provide greater opportunities for our students in the present and future.
Individualized Education - Central to our belief is a shared respect of the individual needs of children. Along with aligning curriculum to the standards, we will use students’ prior language knowledge and cultural experiences to guide teaching.
Professional Collaboration - We are dedicated to supporting children in developing bilingualism and biliteracy. Our teachers work collaboratively to create learning experiences that are rigorous, meaningful and are based on students’ diverse cultural backgrounds.
