At Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Elementary School, P.S. 153, our mission is to adequately prepare students so that by the terminal grade all students will be healthy, well-educated and adjusted, respectful, tolerant, responsible individuals. Our students will possess a positive image of themselves, their family, and their community. They will possess the concepts, knowledge, skills and attitudes required to be successful in middle school through adult life. They will be exposed to a wide variety of artistic disciplines, acquire literary as well as critical and creative thinking skills, and have a vision of career opportunities that will exist in the future.
