About Us

Public School 59 is committed to creating a legacy of academic excellence for each and every student from Pre-Kindergarten to 5th grade. We seek to develop individuals who cannot merely be defined by standards, but can set them as well.


Excellence Always! Always Excellence!

ACADEMICS EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM ~ Our educational program is designed to prepare students to handle academically challenging courses in English language Arts, Science, Mathematics, Gym, and Computer Technology. Our goal is to cultivate a school-wide technology-rich environment that allows for effective integration of educational technology into each and every classroom.


ENRICHMENT PERIOD ~ Once a week, all students in PS 59 are offered an elective class for the enrichment period. Class offerings include: Fashion, Chorus, Basketball, Photography, Dance, etc. Students can sign up for these.

CHARACTER ~ Fairness, Caring, Citizenship, Trustworthiness, Respect, and Responsibility- The Six Pillars of Character of are ethical values to guide our choices. The standards of conduct that arise out of those values constitute the ground rules of ethics, and therefore of ethical decision-making.  We instill these values in our students individually, in small groups, and whole school.  We believe that a student who shows himself to be of good character transfers that into his academics.
