PS 46 Educational Philosophy PS 46 prides itself on meeting each child where they are and pushing them to greater success. Whether your child is in 3K or 5th Grade, we believe that children need to learn how to be successful academically, socially, and emotionally. Our staff focus on teaching students how to manage their own emotions and communicate with others in effective ways that prepares them to collaborate with peers. Through morning messages of positivity, social-emotional learning activities in class, highlighting positive examples of students helping each other in our newsletter, and our monthly Community Circle, our school ensures that all of our students feel like valued members of our community. Our school targets the individual academic needs of our students and provides targeted instruction based on those needs. Our teachers model effective reading and writing strategies on a daily basis, providing students with mentor texts and modeling how to implement strategies before sending them off to try on their own. Students are placed in flexible groups based on their needs at any given time. Here at PS 46, we emphasize small-group instruction to target the individual needs of our students.
