M.S. 180's SCHOOL MISSION & PURPOSE
The students, staff, and parents of Middle School 180 are devoted to academic excellence and individual academic strengths and talents in a clean, safe and supportive environment where the individual differences and the respect for the rights of others guide school and community behavior. The arts are a vital component of the educational philosophy, design and program of Middle School 180. The Arts provide the motivation, the challenge, the direction, the recognition, the self-esteem and the cooperative and authentic learning environments essential to the emotional, social and academic success of our students. The school curriculum affords each student the opportunity to achieve and demonstrate high standards in many domains, including academics, the arts and major areas of athletics. Our goal for all students is to prepare them to become productive and responsible members of the culturally diverse global community in which they live. The Library website serves as an extension of said goals and seeks the furtherance of students fluency with online resources.
