Fifty-Third Street School is committed to the goal of working to ensure that every student is a proficient or advance reader, writer, communicator and problem solver across all content areas. We serve students in K3 through Grade 8, and offer programs designed to meet a wide range of educational needs. Continual academic progress is expected as we educate all children to become productive efficient workers and responsible citizens. Students are taught to exhibit positive behaviors by demonstrating strength of character in attitude and behavior. The Fifty-Third Street School Creed which states “I can be whatever I want to be” is recited daily by students as they are encouraged to believe and achieve it.
