Dear M.S. 137 Community,

It is with great please that I welcome you all to a new school year!

Our commitment at M.S. 137 America’s School of Heroes is to provide all students with a safe and academically stimulating environment meant to ensure that when all students graduate, they are well-rounded 21st Century Learners ready for high school, college and their future careers.  

The foundation of our school is predicated on the hard work and contributions of students, parents and staff alike. We offer rigorous coursework in all subject areas, aligned to the standards, as well as to the individual needs of our students. In addition, our various After-School programs support all of our students emotionally, socially, physically and academically specializing in areas such as Math & ELA, SHSAT Preparation, athletics, video production, multi-cultural activities, Theater and more. In an effort to ensure that our students learn the way that best fits them, we have also begun to unroll a 1:1 iPad initiative aimed at using mobile devices, across subject areas and grade levels, to teach lessons, participate in activities and complete homework. In addition, students at M.S. 137 can also take part in a Dual Language program, in which both Spanish and English are used for instruction in order to further develop language proficiency and literacy. These are just a few ways that M.S. 137 continues to support our school community now and in the future! 
I feel honored to be a part of such an amazing school community that is constantly growing and improving. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you during this school year and wish you all success!

And REMEMBER: Attitude is a little thing that makes a BIG difference!
