ABOUT PS 705
Established in 2012, the mission of Brooklyn Arts and Science Elementary School is to celebrate the unique talents of each child and to cultivate those strengths into powerful assets that serve the student and society.
In keeping with our guiding principles:
We celebrate each other’s unique abilities.
We cultivate the innate curiosity of each learner.
We perceive challenges as opportunities for growth.
We realize the power of shared intelligence through collaboration.
We nurture the spirit of exploration through cultural experiences.
Our inquiry-based instructional approach is inspired by the Chinese proverb: “Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand.” Our students are expected to gather and analyze information, make observations, and draw their own empowering conclusions.
Through a curriculum based on the scientific method, school-wide enrichment classes, and our global studies focus, we prepare our students to fully participate in the world as 21st century citizens.
At PS 705, every learning experience is designed to develop the Habits of Mind that will move our students toward a future of academic achievement and personal success.
