Diversity at PS11
We believe that diversity is a reflection of the way we live in the world today. As a school community we acknowledge diversity as an encounter with differences in identity, experiences, backgrounds, beliefs and ideas. In addition to academic excellence, our mission as a public school is to promote a culture of respect, social awareness and moral responsibility among our students, families and staff.
At PS11, we define diversity as a focus on race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic level, sexual orientation, physical ability, academic ability, family structure and religion.
We know that our students are growing up in a world that is increasingly more diverse. It is our responsibility to enrich the lives of our students with an experience and an education that reflects that reality. The welcoming and respect for diversity at PS11 allows us to achieve our goal — to prepare our students to be leaders of the world they will inherit.
