  • P.S. 108 Mission

    Our mission is to foster the optimum achievement of students by empowering them with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in a complex, global society.

    P.S. 108 Vision

    Our vision is to provide a comprehensive, rigorous, exciting educational program with an emphasis on literacy and mathematics development that is aligned with NYS and NYC performance standards. Guided by the principles of learning, students are challenged to think critically. Inquiry, analysis, problem solving and decision-making are integral parts of an educational program that allows students to achieve individually and cooperatively. Our collaborative spirit seeks to nurture and support the whole child. Through academic and artistic endeavors students develop self-confidence, tolerance and independence while celebrating similarities and diversity. Educators and parents support efforts to increase students' access to information with a growing emphasis on technology. P.S. 108 recognizes its responsibility to prepare students not only for the next level of education but also for the many challenges facing productive citizens of an ever-changing society.

Workout with the Parent Coordinator
    Dear Parents and Caregivers:
    This is to inform you that the Summer Rising 2022 Enrollment Portal will become available April 25, 2022. The link to enroll will be posted at nyc.gov/SummerRising . Families must enroll only through the Summer Rising 2022 Portal, there is NO Paper Application. This ensures that students are matched to a location that has space for them and allows both the school and CBO to receive the same data of students for planning. 
    This will be a first come first serve, so we are strongly encouraging families to enroll as soon as possible starting on April 25th. Families can enroll for a seat at any open Summer Rising location. P.S.108 students this summer will be going to 11 X 498 Van Nest Academy. If the location is at capacity, families will no longer have the option to enroll in that site and because there is a capacity limit at each site, families should enroll as soon as possible to secure a seat. Families should have their child's 9-digit student ID# to enter when enrolling and students must enroll using their current grade level.
    Families should email summer@schools.nyc.gov or call 311 if they have any additional questions. 
    If you need your child's student ID# please call Mrs. Rodriguez the Parent Coordinator @ 332-216-5378.
