Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! The Bay Ridge Elementary School for the Arts is committed to providing high standards and expectations for each student’s academic performance, participation, and responsible citizenship.


Our school mission is to develop the academic, social, and civic skills of our students in an atmosphere that fosters independent thinking and learning. With a highly effective partnership between the school, community, and home, our students will achieve a high standard of excellence.


Our teachers create opportunities for intellectual risk-taking, collaboration, problem-solving, and application of classroom learning to real-life situations. We implement strategies that promote ownership of learning and encourage students to pose questions, examine possibilities, and apply skills to find solutions to authentic issues.


I wish you all a wonderful school year! Please do not hesitate to contact me as my door is always open.
