United Community School

 

 

PS 192 became a Community Learning School through the UFT's United Community Schools (formerly the NYC Community Learning Schools Initiative) in April of 2018.  The mission of United Community Schools is to improve student achievement by addressing the educational, emotional, social and health issues that can stand in the way of learning.  In schools across New York City, we’ve demonstrated how this can happen by connecting the entire school to the community.
