In partnership with home and community, our school, The Robert J. Christen School, is committed to promoting a culture of civic and personal responsibility, a love of learning, and a sense of family within a safe and nurturing environment.
PS 81, The Robert J. Christen School is a school of excellence. Our vision is to maintain a safe and nurturing child-centered learning atmosphere.
We focus on implementing educational programs that promote high standards, a love of learning and contribute to the growth and social development of our children. We treat children as individuals and provide every child with a supportive and appropriately challenging learning environment. We celebrate our cultural and ethnic diversity and strive to create an atmosphere of tolerance that will be the foundation of our children’s lives. Our educational program prepares our children to be productive, literate members of their community and our democratic society.
Our instructional focus is driven by our vision of creating a nurturing and child centered learning environment. Social and emotional learning is embedded in all subject areas. The R.U.L.E.R approach acknowledges the value and impact of emotions in our everyday experiences. It is designed to support the emotional intelligence to stakeholders of all ages, with the goal of creating a healthier, more equitable, innovative and compassionate society. We immerse children in reading a variety of genres for the purpose of making connections, formulating questions, making interpretations, and reading critically. Paralleling this process, the Writing Program is designed to encourage expressive formats including research based non-fiction writing as well as personal responses to literature. Our mathematical goals go way beyond computational experiences. Math talk, problem solving, and Literacy in Math” are built into mathematical instruction in order to deepen understanding and emphasize mathematical thought processes. Scientific inquiry is the basis of our instruction in this area and encourages curiosity and the use of the scientific method. Community values are taught inclusively within our Social Studies program. Technology is used to support all areas of the curriculum. Currently we are putting emphasis on digital sophistication and coding experiences.
