PS 53 Mission Statement
The Barbara Esselborn School, a community of children and adults, will work together to provide a learning environment that is safe, caring, and nurturing. Each child will actively and responsibly seek to achieve their academic, emotional, and physical potential. Every adult will challenge students to meet and exceed high performance standards. We will continue to utilize all community resources to ensure the cognitive, creative, and social growth of every student. Our school community will continue to seek new and innovative instructional approaches that are appropriate to students' diverse learning styles and abilities. All of us will strive to prepare each child to be a lifelong learner and a contributing member of an ever-changing society.
