New York City Academy for Discovery, P.S. 306Q, is a collaborative community dedicated to the mission of providing the highest quality education to each of our students. Central to our mission is a shared belief that each child brings to our school a unique set of abilities and talents. Our highly dedicated faculty work closely together in an enriching environment for all of our students. Equally central to our mission is the teaching of important community values. Thus, we encourage children to celebrate diversity, to respect each other, and to work together with shared goals. We recognize a supportive environment as one that also includes clear expectations and academic rigor. P.S. 306Q is dedicated to teaching a common-core curriculum in a supportive environment, to ensure that our students will achieve their highest potential, and go on to a lifelong quest for learning and achievement.
Our vision is to encourage all constituents to commit to sustaining strong, positive connections so that our students can grow as intellectual, moral thinkers who achieve academic and personal success, therefore contributing to an empathetic and inclusive society.
Our mission is to create an equitable, affirming, and collaborative community which empowers all students to build character, master skills, achieve high expectations, and
become lifelong learners.
Discovery is the process by which curiosity leads us to inquire, to search for answers, to test out our ideas and to collaborate with others to find the extraordinary in the ordinary. When we discover, we wonder, ask questions, make observations, pull things apart and put them back together to learn something new. We believe that discovery unfolds through the balance of process and product. When we travel the roads of discovery we must keep our destination in mind but allow for
detours along the way.
The educators of the NYC Academy for Discovery, PS 306Q, are dedicated professionals who are caring, creative, and enthusiastic. We believe every student can be successful. This is shown through collaboration, high expectations,
and respect for all.
