M.S. 129 Mission and Vision Statements


Mission Statement

Our ultimate goal at M.S. 129 is to instill confidence in our students and assist them in becoming independent learners while fostering personal growth in emotional health, social abilities, and academic strengths.  We will effectively prepare our students for college and careers by promoting personal leadership abilities and skills to assist them in becoming lifelong learners. 


Vision Statement

All students will graduate high school and pursue college, trade school, or enter solid careers because our students have been instilled with clear and strong educational values.  The students will grow to be leaders and respectful members of society that understand what it takes to succeed in life.


Core Values

Respect:  We take responsibility for our actions and value professionalism.  Staff and students are treated with respect, which in turn will help our students grow into respectful adults.


Excellence:  We believe that all of our students can achieve at high levels.  We are accountable to ensure that they are given the tools necessary for this to happen.


Peace:  We are committed to using conflict resolution strategies to help students avoid violent or disrespectful encounters to better deal with life’s issues.
