The mission of IS 584 is to provide our students with the academic and personal foundation necessary to successfully pursue advanced studies and attain personal growth as global citizens. Our school will create a demanding, socially conscious environment that involves students, parents, teachers, staff and administration actively participating in the educational experience of each child. Our curriculum of study will be infused with STEAM, Project-based Learning and Dual Language (in the 6th & 7th grade).
