Who We Are . . .

The Kings College School is a kindergarten through fifth grade school located in the Norwood section of the Bronx. We serve a unique and multicultural community. The school is situated in the hub of the Montefiore Hospital complex, the Jerome Avenue marketplace, the historically noted Gun Hill Road, Varick House Museum, and the Woodlawn Cemetery. Families from many parts of the world serve to create a distinctively rich educational and cultural community.
 
It is our belief that each child as a matter of moral justice, is entitled to an education that will enable him or her to develop as an effective learner and as a contributing member of the community. Central to this notion is the recognition that all children are intrinsically motivated and capable of learning. We will nurture our children's growth and development by creating social, physical and intellectual environments that are developmentally appropriate, based on standards driven instruction. We must support collaborations where parents, teachers, community and children work together to better ensure the growth and development of productive, literate and caring citizens.

College and Career Readiness


P.S. 94 Kings College School: “College and Career Readiness” Program

    The New York City Department of Education has identified “College and Career Readiness” as the cornerstone for success.  Preparation for success in college and careers goes beyond book knowledge.   Our students must also master other skills and behaviors that lead to success in college and the workplace.  At P.S 94, our objective is to provide our students, with as many opportunities, to see different careers, in addition to learning about the education or skills that needed to pursue this profession.  

    We are asking organizations to help us provide our 5th grade elementary students with the chance to briefly tour their facility, so they may observe; in addition to briefly meet one or two professionals at the company, who will share their education and work experiences.  Furthermore, we would like our students to be able to ask questions.  Our objective is to spark student interest in a possible career path.

     High expectations and support are critical for our students’ success.  To be prepared for challenging college courses and demanding jobs, all of our students must develop their critical-thinking, creative and communication skills.  College and career readiness can only happen when we work together. 

     Community and family involvement are key components to student success in school and after graduation. With this in mind, we hope that organizations will provide our 5thgrade students with a brief tour experience, so we may encourage and motivate their success, both now and in the future.
