The Abigail Adams Elementary School
PS 131, The Abigail Adams Elementary School, recognizes the diverse religious backgrounds and values represented in our school community and the importance of being sensitive to the needs of all students, families, and staff members.
Mission & Vision
During all lessons, students are given opportunities to work in small instructional groups, engage in higher-order thinking that prompts discussion, and allows students to make their thinking visible. Through purposeful teacher models, facilitation, and checks for understanding, students will be supported in becoming critical thinkers. Students engage in challenging tasks that create a productive struggle, supporting them to think critically in a collaborative work environment.
Across all subjects, Thinking Maps provide students with the opportunity to make their thinking visible. Transference from the map to a task allows students to engage in quality, meaningful interactions with the content at a higher level.
Through our Bucket Filler initiative, students are provided social, emotional support that embodies a positive, nurturing, diverse learning environment.
By providing our students with a foundation in academics, as well as social and emotional needs, we are creating 21st-century learners.
We imagine a future where the students at P.S. 131 are conscious, critical thinkers of a diverse society.
Remote learning allows teachers to deliver their lessons online, and students can complete assignments, projects, and assessments just like they would in the classroom. This will create an opportunity for students and teachers to interact online and allows students to continue learning subjects and material that are a key part of their curriculum.
