Our educational mission is to create a community of active learners, enabling our students to reach their full intellectual potential and enabling us to foster a learning environment, which will help in the development of 21st Century skills. These include critical thinking, information management and literacy skills, problem solving and working together cooperatively and collaboratively in as inclusive an environment as possible. This will be accomplished through the collaborative efforts of conscientious students, involved parents, supportive community members and a dedicated staff in our individual academies. IS145Q is a diverse, collaborative school community. Through utilizing the advantages of working in small learning communities, and coming together in celebration as a whole school, we are dedicated to achieving high standards of academic excellence for ALL of our students.
