P.S. 233 Langston Hughes Elementary School
The vision of the Langston Hughes School community is to nurture the potential in students. When students feel that they are cared for and supported, they become empowered to face challenges, persevere, and give their best effort. These qualities help students become scholars.
The Langston Hughes School community’s mission is to provide a safe, nurturing and predictable environment where our scholars can learn to think critically, question the world around them, communicate their thoughts, feelings and ideas articulately and show empathy for others.
