Our Mission, Vision, and Instructional Focus

OUR MISSION
The mission of M.S. 129 is to instill a socially conscious mindset in our students through service learning and social justice education.  Our students will become civic-minded, capable of making sound ethical decisions, and value the greater good.  We will cultivate an academic culture where students are trained to articulate themselves confidently, problem solve effectively, and think critically and creatively.  They will be both well-intentioned and well-educated on social issues with their communities and beyond.  
 
OUR VISION
Our students will become innovative thinkers in the face of social inequity and ultimately become the change makers of society. 
 
INSTRUCTIONAL FOCUS
Scholars will engage in learning experiences that are culturally responsive and cognitively challenging, which will create meaningful discussions using academic language.
